A simple text/html editor please!

It already has opera to preview your code, and with a .txt editor this would be quite handy for some quick typing while say on the bus or train where wi-fi is not available.

Not sure if this answers your question at all, but the archos can access ftp sites and even allows for username/login, however, as far as I can tell there is no way to upload files only download.
