vi and emacs both have named registers that you can use to store and recall text. I don't know how to use vi but I know they're there.

emacs does lots of other wonderful things that I can't/haven't figured out how to do in vi. emacs figures out the line ending and uses it transparently, if it gets it wrong you can override it.
