ex <enter.
If the file is empty type $a at the colon prompt followed by enter. 
Then do your typing.  To end append put a period character at the colon 
prompt followed by enter.  That's the ex editor and is pretty easy to 
learn.  If your isp has bad installed you could try running the learn 
utility on that provider.  There are prerequisite lessons to go through 
these are computer assisted instruction and no inaccessible html since 
that utility was written before html was written.  If the utility is not 
installed and your provider runs bsd, you might ask them to install the 
learn utility.  The learn utility has a very good set of lessons to get 
you going with ex.
