If you are learning a new editor, learn vim instead of vi. vim is 
basically 'vi iMproved'. It is a very nice, powerful and not bloated editor. 
It has syntax highlighting, folding, ctags support, compile/edit/run support 
within vim and a lot more.

On consoles you can use vim. For graphical environments you can use gvim.

If you are serious about programming, move away from editors like pico. Use 
programming editors like vim, emacs etc., They save you a lot of time in the 
long run.
