Well I'm already quite impressed.
I'll have to re-learn lots of ed stuff, but way back when I was a 
younger fellow, I worked on a Unix system.  My PC running dos was 
connected through a serial port.  the PC ran Dos and I could never get 
terminal emulations to work out, so full screen editors, Emacs ETC, were 
a real hassle.  Ed was my buddy then, and this program will be great for 
editing HTML among other things.
