'Scintilla' is a source code editing component for GTK+. It has the usual features found in text editing components, as well as some that are especially useful for editing and debugging source code; these include support for syntax styling, error indicators, code completion and call tips. Styling choices are more open than with many editors: Scintilla lets you use proportional fonts, bold and italics, multiple foreground and background colours, and multiple fonts.
