Dear John,

I would suggest, that those beginners would adopt Scite as their editor. 
I find it an excellent editor for my purposes. The advantage is, that 
this editor is very well integrated with Context. There is normally no 
command window necessary! So if you give these people a minimal context 
with Scite they surely are on the good track.

Kind regards Willi
