"As communication becomes more Web-centric, text editors become
more essential writing tools. Blocks of text get tweaked with HTML
codes to provide a more graphical appearance. So good text editors
are those with many of the same features found in word processors,
only without the added formatting and graphic components.
"Kate Text Editor
"One of the best text editors for anyone who handles a heavy
flow of words is the Kate Text Editor. This is one my two favorite
text-writing apps. (The other is Geany Text Editor.) Unless I need
a final copy in a polished printout, Kate is a more convenient
choice than a full-fledged word processor.
"Kate is a multi-document editor that grew from a rewritten
version of the KWrite editing widget of the KDE desktop. Even if
you run the more standard Gnome desktop in your Linux distro, Kate
runs just fine. The few required KDE libraries that Kate needs are
bundled in the installation package."
