In my 6 years of maintaining my webpages, I have never once seriously
used anything other than a plain text editor. Any program that purports
to turn formatted text into HTML usually has a Bible-full of bugs and
stupid programming decisions. I eventually just stopped taking chances,
since it's far more difficult to go edit some screwed up HTML doc than
to just do it yourself in the first place. And yes, cmd-C, cmd-V are my
friends. ;)
