I added some info about SciTE, which can use proportional fonts.
However it doesn't have any Scheme features beyond (very good)
parenthesis-matching.  Some day if I find the time I would like to try
adding some.  As it is, I like this editor because I can use it for
everything (any language, UTF-8 and Unicode, plain text, etc), on
every platform, for both work stuff and hobby stuff.  I know vi well
enough too, just as a fallback, but haven't taken the time to learn
emacs.  (Yes I should...)  Personally I don't usually use the
proportional fonts; almost everywhere I have worked insists on keeping
lines shorter than 80 columns, and that's easier to see with the
fixed-width fonts.  (It's old-fashioned but what can you do....)
