Above and beyond truly universal in power.

Bram Moolenaar surely deserves a %s/beckham\./beckham+knighted./g

for this genius piece of code complete with :help iccf

Come on Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. Pronunciation in Spanish ([ˈmaksima soreˈɣjeta ˈseruti]) and Dutch ([ˈmɑksimaː]) source:Wikipedia, if that helps with the name any, unsure on simple english type pronounciation...sorry.

On that, why is Vi pronounced "vee-aye", not "veye";

when Vim is pronounced "vim" as one word, like Jim and not "vee-aye-im" ???

The keep it simple, stupid in me says "veye" and "vim".

Please is there a 'greatest software ever written' list as good as this article and its comments.

Thanks all;>
