Yeah, I was about to write that I couldn't find it!
Oh well, while looking for Essay, I found WriteRoom. It actually works! But there is some room for improvement... it would be nice if the search function worked like the "Find" command in NotePad (of Windows fame). In WriteRoom, the search function finds the file containing the text, but doesn't allow any upper/lower/ignore case options, and it doesn't hilite the occurrence of the text (and it seems some text that is present, couldn't be found). Hmmm, some work needs to be done on this one.
But it does import text files from the PC correctly. I guess I have to play around with it some and see how it goes. Someone who is a good programmer could make $$$ by creating a good text editor. Many of the programs I have taken a look at seem half finished, or rushed... much room for improvement (not the least of which is some help files -- that would be really nice for us folks that are somewhat challenged).

Works fine for .txt files. I actually hadn't used it for that purpose but based on your question I tested it. Works like a charm and is very easy. Where you would encounter problems, I'd think, is with .doc or .docx files. For those you need an application like Documents To Go (or another of the Microsoft Office emulation tools) that could read the Microsoft formatting.

But for your purposes all you have to do is...
() Open iTunes on your computer.
() Connect your iPad to the computer with the usb cable.
() Open the object on the left side column that identifies your iPad.
() Open the apps tab.
() Open File Sharing and click on GoodReader.
() Drag the .txt files on your computer to the Goodreader pane of the iTunes app.
The detailed instructions are all available when you open GoodReader on your iPad.
GoodReader sounds really nice. What sort of search ability does it have?
