We're always looking after new editors to use at Conectiva (we're 42
people at the Publishing Department writing SGML and doing
translations so having an easy to use editor would be a good
thing(TM), not to mention that there are some administrative people
that will have to start using XML / SGML soon...) and the best we've
found 'til now is Emacs + PSGML (I'm not the right person to talk
against Emacs, but I wasn't the person doing the tests).
TkSGML (aka EpcEdit) requires that you know the tags and this is,
IMHO, the hardest part: knowing what tags you can use and in which
context they apply.
What's the best editor for *you*? If the one you know can generate
ISO-8859-1 files (or the encoding that you use at your system) and
generate a 'clear text' output, then this is the best for you. You'll
have to learn the tags and where you can use them, but you won't have
to learn it + some other editor.
I agree with Mark when he wants to let you choose the editor you want
to use. Learn one thing at a time.
