I hear you there.  It would be nice if someone could port a simplified 
version of OpenOffice, or some other reasonably decent WP to the Maemo 
platform for those times when you need to edit and don't have online 

IMHO, most of the current crop of text editors that I've run across are 
throw backs to the way early 80s -- barely more than what some computer 
prof might assign as a weekend programming project for a first year 
student to create.   A big advance would be something that comes close 
to the first edition of Wordpad on Windows in the early 90s, which 
handled rich text.  There's an editor that attempts to create html text, 
but it's sort of inadequate, even for that, in my limited experience 
fooling around with it.
