The opportunities are endless.
They are something like this:

1) Emacs
2) Vim
These two are classics, but can be quite difficult for a beginner.
3) Bluefish
Unfortunately, in Ubuntu, it's built with Gnome deps.
4) Scite
Your best bet for a powerful, yet simple GTK editor.
5) Jedit
Very nice, even if it's a Java editor, it's still small and fast
(it even has a Debian repository).
6) Jext
Another Java editor, quite nice.
7) Nedit
Nice, it's interface is kind of ugly, but otherwise, it's very good.

and the list could go on and on :)
