Windows Command Line Editor (with syntax autocompletion)

I am searching for a Windows command line (CMD) text editor syntax highlighting.
We do a lot of Batch file creating, and editing, and it would be good to have some kind of formal application that would help to prettify the .bat/.cmd files and also have automatic syntax completion.  Does anyone know of any good free or cheap program that you can do this with?

Notepad++ offers capability of doing this with almost all other languages, but it doesn't appear that it will help with Command line CMD.exe editing.

I'm partial to Programmer's Notepad.

It has support for a large variety of languages/formats, including CMD/Batch and auto-complete is configurable (e.g., auto-complete after x characters or auto-complete on request [Ctrl+space]).
