The OP is talking about Windows Notepad. Assuming it to be, quote,
"written reasonably", unquote, is like assuming that an elected
politician has a brain, or that a young child will like broccoli, or
that a post from 88888 Dihedral will be useful and intelligible.

Also, I just tested Notepad, and if it's given multiple parameters, it
interprets them as a single filename with spaces in it (and then
offers to create that file). Was worth a try though.
