I'm not a real vi adict, but because it is so easy to write html directly
using any editor one is used to, I am very reluctant to learn some
editor just to do html (I'm using the zip/jot editor for sgi machines)

In my opinion the html I use is only because it is so simple. All of
the exhibits on EXPO were created this way (I don't know about
Barry's part though).
