vi help
« on: March 13, 2008, 05:25:21 pm »

Hi all,
when I run vi ( say vi test.html for example ) vi opens up but does not show me the html tags. instead it displays like a browser. how can I stop this? I have looked in the man pages but cant find anything.
Evil Overlord rule 58 My doomsday device will not employ a large red digital countdown device unless it is absolutely necessary.  If a countdown device proves to be necessary, the doomsday device will be set to activate when the counter reaches 00:10:00, rather than 00:00:00.
