How to view java files in src directory?

I don't have a java IDE and am using just notepad for my java files. I tried to use notepad to view the source files included with the jsdk(i.e. java.util.Hashtable.java), but they are difficult to read. Any ideas on what else I can use to view these files.
Thanks.

A lot of JavaRanchers use TextPad. It's kind of a cross between a full fledged IDE and a plain text editor like notepad. It has syntax highlighting, regex searching and many other features. You can also compile and run right from TextPad. You can download it here.
