Seconded - if Gedit can have a wordcount why not Kate? I found a couple of addons that should give a wordcount, but only one, an external tool, actually works for me, and I have to recreate it whenever Kate is updated.
And the lack of macro is absurd in a progging editor, I had to brush the dust off 98SE the other day to do a bulk edit with TextPad. If TextPad were ported to Linux I would be using it.
TextPad works perfectly in Linux with vanilla wine. I've tried it myself a couple of times... Though, my vote goes for jEdit. A very good example of what Java applications can do. Very customizable and platform independent as well. I can use vi if I need to make quick edits in a config file, nothing more
