jEdit 5 is a free contender and users would be wise to check that out. For developers it can be outfitted with enough plugins to become a simple IDE. I couldn't get it listed as an alternative. It would seem some apps are blocked for being listed as some do turn up right away, but it could also be that an app needs to be suggested by several to show up. If you feel jEdit is comparable then please suggest it.
