I use vi when root or remote, emacs for anything else. And that's the way I've used Un*x computers for nearly two decades, so it's not likely I'll change any time soon.

Technical documentation note: you started talking about NNmove in the middle of a paragraph, and leave it up to the user to infer that NN represents some decimal number typed as digits. New general concepts deserve careful introduction.

Start a paragraph with something like, "To do anything a number of times, such as move the cursor eleven lines, just precede the usual command with a number; typing "1 1 k" is equivalent to typing "kkkkkkkkkkk" while in nav mode.

    [Eily]: yes we're pretty prawn to making puns around here
    Eily went to the wiktionary to check that the pronunciations of prawn and prone are actually similar. Turns out prawn can be an alternative form of porn...
