Sorry,  my context was for those who already knew either of those editors.
If you're not familiar with editors, then WordPerfect for windows or sgedit/tksgml
are more newbie-friendly.

I disagree.  I don't think it's up to me to propose an editor for an author to
use.  You wouldn't like my recommendations ;)
However, I could include a note with each editor to mention how newbie-friendly
(both in terms of installation, and use) they are.
