        In our small world, online editors mean "an editor interface you
access via the mud".  Which means we have to limit ourself to a text
interface, somewhere in the 24x80 screen size.  Online editors mean,
roughly, Oasis or Obuild (or some derivation of the same).

        Technically, an offline editor that also connects to a mud and
updates things in real time could be called an online editor - however to
do so would only confuse people, and serve no purpose.  I'm a simple
person, and I usually don't bother with semantics without a good reason.
Confusing people isn't a good reason.

        So, it's an offline editor, optionally with real time updating.
