I know you don't to hear it, but I can't believe there is anything
better than vim. I do xhtml, css, php, and javascript 50 hrs a week or
so, on both local and remote systems. There is one application I
insist on before anything else: vim. The very first thing I do (after
setting up my ssh keys) on a new system, is copy my vimrc. Next is my
muttrc. Have vimrc, will travel ;-)
