GUI Text Editor for GNOME

Hello, all!

I just got Debian up and running on an iMac G3 500MHz, and now I want to get down to business on it.

I have an iBook running Mac OS X 10.4.10 and I use BBEdit Lite (the version that came before TextWrangler, which is also a good app) as my text editor on it. My dad has a Compaq running Windows XP and I use NotePad++ as my text editor on it.

I mainly crack open and\or create text files, but I do a tiny (tiny!) bit of C programming as well.

Can anyone recommend a GUI text editor for GNOME that has similar functionality and power to these two programs (line numbers, optional text wrap, and line ending conversions are key, but other things, too)? I'm not interested in the learning curves of vi or emacs right now, so please don't recommend gVim or XEmacs.

Thank you in advance for any recommendations you can provide.

Jeffrey Rolland
