Also a nice shareware editor called TextPad is really worth looking at.
In addition to 
automatically detect both DOS and UNIX file formats it has some nice
like regex searches through several files, auto indenting, block
manipulation commands,
a block select mode with which you can delete, move or copy columns
whole or in part,
It has macros, an optional clip library with html tags, html character,
control character
from which you can copy and paste into your text. It also has a tools
menu which you can
configure to run external tools upon your file, like make, cc, or some
Multiple files can be edited at the same time, without the nasty size
of notepad. Besides, it is extensively configurable.
Needless to say it cal save files in either format. 
Highly recommended. 
You can download a fully functional version, without to much nagging
