piemmm: Zap's based on ARMBe, in that it edits the tokenized files, and the renderer renders the expansions. I've often found, for example, that StrongEd would detokenize tokens inside strings, but not retokenize them, thus buggering them up, as well as get tricky things as confusing "TOP" and "TOP%" (inside a FOR statement) wrong more often than Zap. I certianly know that !Slayer's !RunImage could be edited quite successfully in Zap, where Edit and StrongEd would cack it up completely. :)

As I am often quoted, and kill-filed for saying: "People who use StrongEd do so because they prefer it. People who use Zap do so because it's better." ;-)
