There are a variety of built in text editors, usable in console mode or in a terminal window within X Windows. The most fully featured built-in editors are vi(1) and mg(1).

If you want a graphical text editor there are many, but all are third party packages. Of these I sometimes install and use mousepad, mostly for copy/paste rather than text editing.
