No, I need unified graphical representation accross editors. One of my
customers was Czech National Bank. Due to security users do not know
administrator password and are not allowed software at their will,
soeone in the bank after some testing decides what can be installed on
users' computers. I cannot tell them "install TeXworks" because they
are not allowed to do it.

I write not only TeX files but also Java, XML, XSLT, Perl, bash, PHP,
httpd.conf files, /etc/motd messages. I do not want to have a separate
editor for each purpose and learn how to use it. Moreover I often use
a text editor over ssh where GUI is not available. Color usually is
but need not be. I need one good editor that can be used in all such
cases and I must be able to use whatever editor other people have if
it is necesary to edit the file immediately on someone else's

If nice features are added to a particular editor, it is of course
good but the TeX source file readability must not be bound to a
particular editor with particular features.
