Well, they're both based on Scintilla, along with Notepad2 and a bunch of others so quite a few similarities.

Notepad++ does twice as many UI languages, file format conversion (i.e. ASCII <=> UTF8 <=> UTF16) overlapping and splittable windows, etc. etc. ...

Thre's also a bunch of plugins for Notepad++, some of which I use.

If you speak French, for example, there's only Notepad++. (SciTE seems to have abandoned it)

OTOH if you use Linux, there's only SciTE (with GTK+) because Notepad++ & Notepad2 are Windows only.

For more info, you could read the comparison on Wikipedia: Comparison of text editors
