It would also be a constant discussion - when
to re-learn, when to tweak the new stuff to
your old ways.

The "insert way" of producing code never
appealed to me, as I love typing (the physical
aspect of it), but reading Ken's post I suspect
he is the opposite as otherwise I don't
understand where all hundreds of HTML-specific
shortcuts would come from. (?)

>From an efficiency standpoint, typing is good
as it is more versatile and is readily
transferable between modes. It is more
flexible. Relying heavily on mode-specific
things is the opposite, but when taken to
a certain degree of perfection, for that
particular mode and task I suppose it could be
insanely fast and efficient.
