If I'm understanding you right, in that you want to be able to navigate to one page from the other, then what text editor you use has nothing to do with it - what matters is where the files themselves are stored.

So if you have them both in the same folder (or anywhere really, but that's very slightly more complex to explain) then you can link to them as normal, like a text link from index.html might be:

<a href="page_2.html"> My Link Text </a>

Hope that helps.

Keep in mind that when using Notepad and saving an HTML document for the first time (Save As) be sure to check UTF-8 from the 'Encoding' dropdown near the 'Save' button.
