Re: [vox-tech] vim question

Hint: Vim's syntax highlighting works better under X.  You can also
convert the syntax highlighted text file to HTML, a feature that works
only under X (don't ask me why -- I got an error message when I tried it
under the console.)  I think Bill would find that feature quite handy when
he gives presentations since he wouldn't have to colorize everything by
hand (poor Bill...)
