ReadMe should be a plain text file. So any editor that can save to a .txt format is ok. (Word, Wordpad, Notepad etc)

"Andre",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.

Does it look fine in Notepad? If so I guess its not gonna look good in vi or emacs with ^M characters everywhere. If you look at the Data class they provided it does not open up fine anyway in notepad. Let keep conistency )

Use wordpad. You should be safe everywhere. This is my experience.

I use textpad, I like it because it has color coding, and can compile the code itself.

Hi,
I also use Textpad as you can download syntax highlighters for most languages and there are a lot of nice features included. There are also a number of utilities that you can download for it - such as to show the methods in a Java field.
You can also configure how it formats the text when it saves it.
You can download an unlimited evaluation version at www.textpad.com
Cheers,
Steve
