Mainly note taking, although the files have gotten rather large .. need to toss the cruft!

The high order bit is that the editor work well with textmate. I think that means utf8 & LF and no hidden metadata.  So I'll give PlainText a shot.

While looking at the iPad text editors, I saw Markdown mentioned.  I hadn't really considered it before, but it looks like a nice way to structure text files with the least intrusion possible.  I may give it a shot, and I noticed TextMate has a plugin.
