     33=== GUI Based Editors ===
     34
     35There are a number of GUI based editors available across platforms (gedit, notepad++, sublime text edit just to name a few). The choice of GUI based text editor is a personal one and we offer no opinions on which is best.
     36
     37That being said, any GUI based editor you use should be able to save files in a clean text format (so Microsoft Word is out).
