The best bet here is probably to use TrueCrypt or somesuch to encrypt
your hard drive, rather than depending on a text editor to encrypt files
when saving to the hard drive.  That said, if you need this particular
functionality, I think I saw a gEdit plugin a while back that offered
something similar.
