I like to organize info in tables. OpenOffice/LibreOffice is too heavyweight, I don't need the hit to swap nor the featureset. Is there any lightweight editor that does a table/grid like that, and can export to CSV?

Not trying to start any flame, but Emacs can handle tables. I am not sure whether anyone would consider it lightweight, though.

thanks, I didn't know. I'm definitely not an emacs guy, but it may be worth it for me for this one feature. –  Rich Homolka Sep 14 '12 at 15:00

I don't know of a text editor that does that, the way I solve this problem is to use Google's spreadsheets. No need to any software, cross platform.
