HTML-Kit (http://www.chami.com/html-kit/) has everything you want and more.
I don't know if it qualifies as simple, but it's a great editor. And free.

> Things I would like in it include:
>     -text-based interface
>     -html syntax coloring (and highlighting of errors?)
>     -built-in ftp client to avoid the download-edit-upload cycle 
>         (they will be working in a development area)
>     -Unicode (UTF-8) compliance as they will be working with 
> both English 
>     	and Chinese
>     -search and replace
>     -able to have multiple files open simultaneously
> Other things which would be nice, but are not critical:
>     -built-in link checker
>     -spell checker (for the English parts)
>     -html tidy integration and/or html validation/checking
>     -a kitchen sink or two  :)
> If any of you have such a tool you use and love, could you 
> kindly drop me a note?  I will summarize for the list.
