In principle you could use Word and saving as ascii, but the file may not be in ascii in the first place.
You might want to have a look at
(they are very similar)
There are lots of others.
They are free and easy to install. You don't need latex to use them as editors. Also they are quite good at detecting input encodings in case the files are actually not ascii.

Subject: [texhax] What program can I use to edit TeX files?
I am a copyeditor being asked to edit TeX and LaTeX files for a publisher.
I thought I could just work on the TeX files in Word, treating them as ASCII files, but the publisher wants me to edit the actual TeX files and send them back to them as edited TeX files, not as ASCII files.
Could you please tell me what program I should obtain and install to do this kind of work?
I don't really need to be be able to run TeX/LaTeX as a typesetting program. I just need to be able to edit the native files.
Thanks very much for your guidance!
