Powerful text editor for Windows. Now a Borland Product

Unfortunately, Borland has decided to [discontinue CodeWright].
CodeWright supports the following Macro Languages: appBASIC, PERL 5.x, internal API (C-like). Also supports keystroke macros (recordings) ala BRIEF. Considered the premiere Windows editor, especially for programmers (see http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?CodeWright ).
Let me state up front that I have been a fan of CodeWright since the days when it was a Starbase product, so I may be a bit biased. Beyond the 'macro support' listed above, it has a lot of great features for programmers especially:
But the feature that I like most (and have never found in another editor) is the ability to mark, cut, copy, past and insert as 'columns' or 'blocks' ... ignoring 'line breaks'. That is an AWESOME ability … especially when you are working with code, and assembly most of all. But I have to say that I use it a lot outside of programming.
JOE (Joe's Own Editor, now hosted as joe-editor on sourceforge) has a block-mode which might work for you. In the jstar variant, it's reached with ^OX toggle (stream/rectangular); you can reassign that (and every other keybinding) by editing the rc.
