Re: [vox-tech] vim question: making mapping atomic w.r.t the '.'command

This macro works, but you have to position the cursor on the beginning of the
word, otherwise, you end up with only a part of the word emphasized. Another
strategy would be:

1. Find the previous space character.
2. Move the cursor right by one.
3. Then change the word.

Here would be that strategy expressed as a macro:

:nmap gfe F lcw\empf{<esc>pa}<esc>
Why not use the 'b' command, which finds the beginning of a word, and works for words at the beginning of a line as well.

:nmap gfe bcw\emph{<esc>ea}<esc>
