SimonC:

I can't speak for other people, but I tried both. My preference for Zap basically comes down (I suspect) to the fact that it's maintained by people who seem to think in much the same way that I do. Some people have put my preference (for Zap) down to the fact that I also use Emacs (on Unix boxen) a fair bit - but various Unix people have suggested that I prefer Emacs (to Vi) because I'm so used to Zap....

I think it's probably a bit of both; some people will generally find one (out of Zap and StrongEd) much easier to use than the other, but some people will do equally well with whichever they happen to pick up first.
