Bluefish is one I haven't tried. Not yet, anyway. I'll let you know in an
hour or so! I've certainly used Quanta-Plus for straight html work although
I do a lot less of that these days since I discovered Ruby on Rails
When I'm not wearing my systems development hat I'm a writer (crime fiction,
since you ask) and I use emacs a lot because it can't be beat for getting
volumes of text in quickly without being distracted by formatting. As a
result I tend to use it for a lot of coding tasks too, especially perl and
bash scripting where it behaves itself quite well and the one-off shell
facility works fine for most things. It is a bit of a Birmingham
screwdriver, mind, and I don't like its built-in terminal mode and it doesn't
behave well with Ruby.
I haven't managed to get enthusiastic about vim and I don't much care for
gedit. Kate is good, but doesn't always behave itself. It's not great with
perl, for example.
