Hi, Tim, I probably wouldn't call it totally simple, but you may wish to at least check out SynEdit. It functions more closely to the MS-Windows model of computing, it is freeware, and it seems to correctly highlight REBOL/Core syntax. I can't offer an endrosement for it since I merely ran across it while looking for freebie editors. But it may fit the bill for your students. Primary link: Download link (avoids the annoying pop-up links at the actual download site link): Good luck with the course. As you've already figured out, you'll be teaching a truly useful programming tool. --Scott Jones
