I used to do it with MegaEdit. But I haven't used Windows or MegaEdit for 5 years now.

take a look at jedit at http://www.jedit.org.

Free software, runs with the java VM, works exactly the same on Win and on Linux. Syntax coloration, folding, synchronized scrolling of two windows,... The end-of-line style (MS or Unix) can be set for the current buffer or as a default.

Another fork from the same tree is jext at http://www.jext.org.

You could just run 'dos2unix' on your DOS style text files to make them into UNIX ones. (and use unix2dos to change them back)
