I'm looking for an
- open source
- cross platform
editor that I can use to write documentation. I'm not looking for a web based solution - i.e. it should work without a web server, and I want to save my files directly to disk.
- Subversion diff can be used to see differences between the versions easily (this wouldn't work with .odt or .rtf files for example)
I'm currently thinking about using Open Office, and saving the files as HTML, but is there a better solution?
