It's all about convenience, my friend. If I can have a simple webpage in my
file system capable of giving me a text editor in just about any browser --
from lynx to whatever top-of-the-line graphical browser -- I can carry it in
my pocket. Further, when chasing academic information across the Net, it's
better and less distracting to have an editor in a browser tab than to open
yet another application.

Having the option to configure such things as soft-wrap versus static wrap,
and reformatting of the latter, are necessities, but more bells and whistles
don't hurt. The point is it has to run without a webserver behind it, so I
assume it will be lots of Jscript.
