I like the strongED method, usingjust one key operation to move text 
rather than two. The only disadvantage, for me, is that I tend to switch 
between StrongED and Notepad++, which uses the ctrl-c - ctrl-v method. 
Remembering which I'm currently using is occasionally irritating. Thank 
goodness for undo, which both do well.
