I prefer vi for editing, but its really just a matter of taste. ;)

As for the snippets, make sure to only add them in one at a time or you
run the risk of not knowing which one is causing problems.  Basically,
pick one, add it, and work out all its bugs before moving on to the next.

Oh, and back up your (I assume) currently working mud before you start
and after each successful snippet installation (if you wish) so you can
easily roll back to a "working" version with little trouble. <G>
