- A text file (sometimes spelled "textfile"; an old alternative name is "flatfile") is a kind of computer file that is structured as a sequence of lines of electronic text. A text file exists stored as data within a computer file system. Text files can contain plain text, but they are not limited to such.
Plain text, as you might have guessed, is rather plain. It supports standard ASCII characters, including numbers, symbols, and spaces, but does not support any type of text formatting. You can use a basic text editor such as Notepad or WordPad (for Windows) or TextEdit (for Mac) to create a plain text document.
- Plain Text: Plain text contains no formatting, only line breaks and spacing. Therefore no text formatting (such as font sizes and colors, bolding or italics) can be used. Since it allows for text formatting, Rich Text is a popular default format for the creation of emails.
- HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It's the way web pages and email templates are coded so that text is formatted and images are added. Plain Text is regular text, with no formatting options such as bold, italics, underlines, or special layout options.
- Notepad is used to create and edit text files, so any text file extension can be used, including no extension at all, or made up extensions… Now, if you want to launch Notepad by double-clicking on a file of a specific extension on a pristine Windows, the best extension is probably .txt .
