I use Notepad++ for pretty much all of my text editing too. I agree with the
comments below regarding loading time and usability. But if your students are
working with complicated XML dialects (XSLT/XSD/WSDL/etc.) often, I'd really
recommend them just to get the academic version of oXygenXML. It's $49, last I
checked, and has the full feature set of the Enterprise version.

I use Notepad++ quite often and the only big limitation that it has for me is
that it doesn't allow you to combine, in the same single search, what it calls
extended characters (\n, \t, \r, etc.) and the rest of normal regex.
