Larry, I say Amen to your dream. Until then I am looking for a wireless keyboard with lots of special keys, that are all mine, and enough space around them to put my notes
there, that would do the same: insert markups etc into the file :-)

Hmm, on today's computer everything is so fast that the
editor->groff->ps->ghostview cycle can be run amost constantly in the
background, as Ted's and Larry's scripts do.

What I've sometimes imagined in a system where there is a menubar on a
text editor that is the markup menubar.  So you can ask for a paragraph
or a list or whatever and it puts the markup in the text.

Combine that with a split screen, rendered output at the top, source at
the bottom and you're 95% of the way there.
