For a while I experimented with 'Wiki On A Stick' type things for my 
note-taking. Basically a single, self-modifying HTML file that lets you 
create a set of hyperlinked notes:


  Plus side: hyperlinking, headlines, lists, formatting, cross-platform, 
easy to copy to a web page and make available to others etc etc.

  Minus side: all that just gets in the way of typing notes.

but it might work for you. I use it for development of ideas and things 
like that (see also "Mind Mapping Software") but not for note taking. 
That needs to be quick (for me at least).
