oops, sorry, I thought you mean't the 'esc' key. Yeah, I was confusing
"command mode", with "normal mode". For some reason I've always thought of 
"normal mode" as "command mode"


Ex mode                 Like Command-line mode, but after entering a command
                        you remain in Ex mode.

Confused? … well you won't be after this week's episode of Soap …


I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god
than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other
possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.
