Emacs or Vim - how close to a word processor can it get?

Yes, it's usr_24.txt in my vim docs. Example they give is:
:iabbrev JB Jack Benny
I have shortened 'iabbrev' to 'iab' for convenience. I have also
prefixed my abbreviations with the letter 'y' in order to minimize
Speaking of accidental expansion, I'm embarassed to notice that my text
example to you was expanded by vim. Guess it did what I told it too!
<grin> Sorry about that. Here's a hand typed example from my .vimrc:
iab Americans with Disabilities AQct (ADA) Americans With Disabilities
So, when I want that whole phrase in my text, all I need to type is y a
d a without the spaces. I can't do it now, of course, because vim would
simply expand it for me again.
