save files with Unix format (so don't use Notepad
-nor Wordpad). If you do not have an appropriate
-text editor, try @b{Programmers File Editor}, it is
-free and very convenient. This editor may be downloaded
+nor Wordpad). There are a number of editors
+freely available that can be used.

+@item @b{VIM} (@b{Vi IMproved}) is available from
+@b{}. This editor has the very
+handy ability to easily read and write files in
+either DOS or UNIX style.
+@item @b{GNU Emacs} is available for many platforms
+including MS-Windows. The official homepage
+is @b{}.
+The GNU Emacs on Windows NT and Windows 95/98 FAQ is
