            elvis had colorization long before vim - more than one implementation. vim's colorization was written as an elaboration of elvis's second (official) colorization.

            I've used elvis before, but it's been a long time since. Does it have the text colorization feature like VIM does?

            I think this editor is great, too. I especially like its ability
            to handle multiple buffers/windows :)
