I've long, almost ten years now, prefered FTE as it is relatively
lightweight and does a good job with its syntax highlighting.
Unfortunately, its maintainer is AWOL and it has dependency problems
that prevent it from being installed since Xorg 7.0 hit Sid.  It's a
shame really.  VIM is simply obtuse compared to FTE and I won't even
touch Emacs.
