TextPal--powerful, friendly, & free text and code editor

Does anybody know if this is legitimate? >

>Now available at
>TextPal 1.0 is a free, unique text and code editor, optimized for
>productivity by users of the JAWS or Window-Eyes screen reader 
>programs.  Its many features include the following:
>*  Open almost any number of files of any size.  Various formats are
>automatically converted to plain text, including Microsoft Word, 
>Excel, PowerPoint, rich text format, portable document format, 
>Windows help, and HTML.  Files may also be opened from lists of 
>favorite files or recent files.
>*  Find commands automatically read the line with matching
>text.  Count the number of lines, words, and characters in a 
>document.  Query the current line and column position, percentage 
>point, number of characters selected, or whether the document has 
>been modified.  Read text ahead of the caret, prior to it, or the 
>whole document at once.
>*  Select any amount of text without having to hold down the Shift
>key.  Instead, mark the starting point of a selection,  navigate to 
>the ending point by whatever means, and then complete the selection 
>with another hot key.  Copy the entire document to the clipboard 
>with a single command, or copy its complete path with another command.
>*  The standard Copy and Cut commands conveniently assume the
>current line if no text is selected.  Other commands append to the 
>clipboard rather than replacing it.  Another key speaks what the 
>clipboard currently contains.  A new document may be initiated with 
>clipboard text.
>*  Delete by character, word, line, paragraph, to the end of the
>line, to the start of the line, to the bottom of the document, or to 
>the top of the document.  Repeat the current line with a quick copy 
>immediately below.  Insert the current date and time.  Generate a 
>list of files in the current directory.
>*  Prepare structured text documents with a table of contents,
>headings, and sections.  Navigate by section, search by topic, or 
>toggle between the table of contents and the body.  Convert a list 
>of file names to text versions, or combine them into a single, 
>structured document.
>*  Jump to a line, or jump forward or backward by a number of
>lines.  Go to a percentage point of the document, or go forward or 
>backward by a percent.  Set or go to a bookmark preserved from one 
>session to another.
>*  Spell check the current document.  Change text to upper or lower
>case.  Clean up quoted email.  Start an email message using the 
>document as the message body.
>*  Aids for programmers include indenting, out denting, and
>reporting levels of indentation.  Find a matching right or left 
>brace character.  Replace or extract text using regular 
>expressions.  Configure a compiler to be run against source code in 
>the current file.  Export to Unix or Mac formats.
>The number of TextPal commands exceeds 100.  Each is available by
>either menu selection or hot key.  All are discussed in relevant 
>sections of the documentation, invoked with F1.  In addition, 
>Control+H opens an alphabetized list of hot keys, and Control+F1
>opens a sample file for practicing topic navigation commands.  Files
>with a .txt extension may optionally be associated with TextPal, and 
>any file may be opened with it using the Send To option in Windows
>Make the best of text with TextPal!
