Editor recommendations?

I agree that Joe's Wordstar mode, very like the Turbo-IDEs; is good and help
is in fact &KH as &H is ASCII 8 which is backspace.  Otherwise, it is the
best so far;  I just want to try a variety and see what works best as
general editor for mail, scripting, programming if I go that route again,
and so on.

Thanks all so far.

In joe you get help with ctrl + h.
Changing from Dos I found it quite easy to use. I haven't tried it, but
you can start joe in wordstar compatible mode. may be that could help
