Dana is described as "the advanced text processor for Windows" by its parent company, RimArts Software Laboratory in Japan. I first heard about it as the recommended editor for creating DHTML web pages in Dynamic HTML Web Magic, by Jeff Rouyer (New Riders, 1998).
Supports bookmarks, syntax highlighting, unlimited undo and redo, automatic backup, automatic mirroring, and a programmable macro language to create extensibility. Website offers a "30-day free trial" but no info on the cost of this (apparently) commercial software, or even any way to purchase it! Not very commercial, I think. (EricPement)
