Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

HS has great keyboard shortcuts for indenting/unindenting. I
*really* miss it when I'm using anything else.

Pretty sure you can turn off the auto indenting & the tag completion

been a while since i've used HS...

but when i'm typing in copy, or elements, i do the opening tag, the
content, and the closing tag... but in HS (or others) tag completion
automagically inserts the closing tag after my cursor, so when i get
to the end, i still have to take some action to get past it, whether
by arrowing, hitting something like 'end', or using my mouse to
move the cursor...

also, when doing tables, i indent how i like, so when i hit a hard
return, i want to be at the start of the next line, not tabbed in
because i just used a </td> on the previous line... so i have to stop
and untab/unspace...

for the most part, the editors have inadequate page opening tags...
no DTD, none of the meta tags i use, wonky order, gratuitous meta
and other tags...

that and i don't have time to customize the code completion
features, so i get capitalized tags, bad or missing attributes,
attributes in the 'wrong' order (i have a preferred order for most
attributes, so it's easier to code from the top of my head), bad
spacing/tabbing... etc...
