      This FAQ was writen entirely using the GWD Text Editor:  (shareware)

        - There are many, many text editors out there (even completely free), but
          this is certainly one of the absolute best editors out there.  Also,
          be sure to support the software developer(s); they did a lot of hard
          work on this.
