Other people have suggested vim, and vim _is_ a really wonderful
editor. I've gotten hooked on Emacs' extremely powerful keyboard
macros and its programmability, though. You can use it to repeat text
expressions and commands, and you can assign commands to any key
sequence. It takes some time to learn, but it's very well worth it.

(delysid: Help! <grin> Let's convince someone to try out Emacs!)

(Disclaimer: I'm sighted. But I use emacspeak a fair bit.)
