Windows only: If you frequently open NFO files—those pesky little text files that often contain scrambled ANSI art—NFOPad is a small Windows Notepad clone designed to display them properly. NFOPad selects the font style based on the file extension, so you can freely switch between basic text files and NFO files without the hassle of changing settings. In the screenshot above, the same file has been opened in both Notepad and NFOPad. The white text on the left is the ANSI text that Notepad is having trouble displaying. Even when the Terminal font is selected in Notepad to properly display the characters there is usually alignment and spacing issues that make any special formatting nearly unreadable.The same text when displayed in NFOPad reveals that the beginning of the file contains ANSI artwork.
