The wording on this should be very careful. The default answer to
'what editor should I use to develop with Django' should be 'the one
that you know how to use and are comfortable using'.

We shouldn't be suggesting that there are a couple of 'correct'
choices, but perhaps providing hints and tips on how to fully use
certain popular editors with Django, eg how to correctly enable syntax
highlighting for django templates in various editors.

We definitely should not be trying to answer the question 'what is the
best editor for Django', or in any way try to suggest to noobies that
they must/should learn a new editor as well as learning Django.

The idea that because someone is new to Django means that they must
also be new to typing to text into a file and need our help to guide
them is somewhat patronizing.
