get you to where you want to be (albeit in HTML) but why not use a
word processor. A text editor (like NoteTab) edits text, a word
processor processes words. NoteTab bakes a cake, while a word
processor puts on the icing, the sprinkles, and the candles.

go back (if I choose) and denote italics, underlines, etc, for which I
use Word 2000.
If I'm writing casual text such as an e-mail, and I wish to denote
*emphasis* I use asterisks, a web-based convention which I learned
only when I began to use the Internet. But if I employ that same
approach (asterisks) when I'm writing in Word 2000, the program
automatically underlines it for me! Ha!

process words in NoteTab *in* vain!

list, I've asked myself this question.
It seemed clear to me that an edition with every imaginable feature in
it was going to suffer the same kind of bloat that the dreaded MS WORD
suffers. I know there is recognition that NOTETAB is too big for some
purposes or Jody wouldn't have pointed me in the direction of the GUN
(Grown Up Notepad) or Metapad for some of the lighter weight tasks for
which one might need a text editor.
Put me at my ease! Tell me v5 will work like this.
(It's already a real pain trying to run NoteTab from a floppy!)
