This should only be about 20 lines of code. The Text widget plus
the standard fole open/save dialogs should dop all you need.

For a very simple example of using the Text widget see the case
study and the Event Driven programming topics of my tutor.

For more detail see Fred Lundh's Tkinter reference.

When you get stuck ask here.
