I think schremmer would be much happier with Smultron as opposed to  
emacs. Smultron is lightweight, has good search and replace, has  
excellent syntax highlighting, better than TS I think, and you can  
split windows in many ways; and you can use tabs to look at many  
documents at once. I don't know how it works with syncing.


It is open source (GPL I think).

I wrote most of my dissertation using this, after starting with TS. It  
was the syntax highlighting that made the difference for me.
