I use GNU Emacs, which offers a white background by default, though I'm
sure there's an option to change it somewhere. Emacs offers syntax
highlighting, also known as font-locking, whereby words are displayed in
different colours according to their function. I've used other editors,
like Nedit and Jedit, but I always come back to Emacs when I can, because
it is so versatile.
