You've got me on my hobbyhorse :-) Both emacs and (el)vi(m)(s), iirc, 
allow multiple edit windows on the same document. Okay, Michael has said 
with Writer's then current - I don't know how much it's been cleaned up 
since then - internals that is pretty much impossible. But if we can get 
multiple windows on the one document, then implementing WordPerfect's 
"reveal codes" mode should be incredibly simple - just have one window 
in wysiwyg mode, and the other in markup mode.

Pull that off, and you'll have all the old greybeard WP power users 
crying in delight ...
