I wouldn't say any tags *need* to be supported, but it sure would be 
nice.  By supported, I mean color-coding and formatting (much like HTML is 
color-coded and formatted now).  Would anyone be willing to volunteer to 
develop this?

In a related vein, the lead developer of Jext (http://www.jext.org), Romain 
Guy, graciously volunteered to write a module to parse/colorize/format 
interchange tags after I asked him about it.  I'm not sure when he'll be 
done with it though.

FYI, Jext is a powerful 100% pure Java programmer's text editor. Mainly 
written for programmers, Jext was designed from the ground up to suit your 
needs. From beginner to skilled coder, everyone should find what they need 
in this editor.  Jext is a lightweight, yet fully featured, software which 
will help you in almost any circumstance as it provides an open 
architecture and a lot of many different possibilities to manipulate text 
of any kind: source code, letters, etc..

(It's better than vi OR emacs).

If you can get a G4 for a single project, then you probably leap mainframes 
in a single bound.  :-)  Man, and I thought my 4-way IDE-RAID subsystem, 
with a P-3 800 and 384mb ram was a big dev desktop.  Do you develop on 
S/390's?  Or are they just your staging area and the production environment 
is a Cray Supercomputer?
