In which case you need a method rather than an application :)
I think EMacs dose that ( It's the catchall Text Editor ).  There is
also fte which runs both command line and X.  The X version dose 
syntax highlighting, the Terminal version ... maybe.

Finally if you want to work in X the choices are endless.  There is
the rising star kwrite ( part of KDE-1.1 ) which uses Windows stile
keybindings and is quite a simple laied back editor with all the 
basic fonctions.  You can select highlight mode ( C, C++, HTML etc... )
