Vision Edit is nice for writing regular text (as opposed to computer
code). Among other things it has a good paragraph reformatting (word wrap)
feature -- the best I found in any editor -- and if you spend weeks
writing for 5 hours a day, that becomes important.

That's right, and I am indeed a registered user.

Yes, I'm using version 3.34. I guess that's the latest version that works
for DOS.

Sorry, maybe I used the word 'hog' incorrectly. What I meant was, with
FDAPM-aware editors such as Aurora or SET, the CPU is idle 98-99% of the
time. With non-FDAPM-aware programs, Tame at least allows some idle time,
typically 50-80%.

Never mind that we cannot perceive this directly, either physically or in
the electricity bill. I just like the idea of saving energy and lowering
operating temperatures :-)

Thanks for the suggestions!
