Yes, Geany is a good replacement, IMHO. I have used it in the (long) past on a Debian (or, was that Ubuntu?) derivative and quite liked it.
I do *not* suggest adding Kate or kWrite to the Xfce patterns, just mentioned I prefer them.
I find kWrite even more useful than Geany, for my needs, but -- as I said above -- Geany is a very good suggestion.
But, for me, kWrite & Kate are superb for some of the work I want them for: Extremely useful for YaST Development, openSUSE work, and great for HTML5 creation and editing.
As for adding extra weight to an older machine, I have them in Xfce on a few old machines, not enough extra weight to even notice.
