GNU EMACS isn't as nice as the AWK script
- sure, it has colours, but EMACS' handling of variable sized
fonts is little or none, and it's handling of links is not so good
(not smart enough to make them tokens).

This being said, Beman is correct: redirecting to a program
editor is the right thing to do. It's just that my editor of choice
(many peoples editor of choice) sucks in this regard.
