Who said anything about editing? Editor != editing.

The point (which I thought was obvious) is that browser text displays are
fairly incompentent when it comes to displaying structured material. It just
isn't what they are designed for. An editor, especially one designed for
programming, typically does much better. Although I'll concede that in the case
of ex, that may not be the case...
