Is there a very, very simple text editor out there, written in java?

I would like a Java replacement of a simple, but very useful program I run at home called Notebook (www.gregorybraun.com).

It's basically a tabbed text editor (not really tabs, but the Table Of Contents allows you to navigate to all the rest of the pages) that is quite useful even when the window is made very small, due to it's simplicity and uncluttered GUI.  It also has optional "stay on top" functionality.

Is there any Java freeware with similar features? I'm NOT looking for a powerful text editor, useful for programming.

Howdy, all. Thanks for the responses.

I am not allowed to install software, though I can run .jar files.  Thus, I'm afraid to run any .exe. Even the .jar installer for jedit has me concerned - I don't know what it does. If it only creates folders, I don't think that's a problem, but if it alters the registry in any way, my assumption is that that is forbidden.

I'll take a closer look at the hoomany links, tomorrow.

rongasa :  I see no references to textpad being written in Java. In any event, it has an .exe installer, which is a non-starter.

hoomany: jext looks too complicated for what i want to do. I managed to run the rtext jar file from the Unix installation (again, I don't want to run any Windows exe, including installation.) However, I don't see any float on top setting.
