      The problem appears when they try to use GNU Emacs/XEmacs and find out
      that it completely different.

      If someone can't configure SciTE, they can try Notepad2, Metapad,
      EditPad Lite...
      SciTE is just between GUI users and keyboard-driven editors -- has a
      decent GUI, but can become much more powerful if you take some time to
      configure it. IMHO, lots of "advanced" configuration should be hidden
      from the common user, or else he'll get lost between tons of
      configuration options.

      C-F4 should do the same as C-w: close a tab or window.
      A-F4 should exit the application completely.
