I'm using Sublime Text. I do like it a lot! I disagree that what I need
is a better editor. What is the more popular to annotate code today:
Github Markdown or Latex? The source file of a latex document is not
amenable to be read as you are coding, but Markdown is. So, it helps
make the code cleaner. ;-)
