They do it, but not nicely. I have to work with these programs,
they're real crap. A good editor allows actions on the structure of
the edited document (e.g., deleting/moving/transposing words,
word-parts, sentences, parenthised remarks, paragraphs, SGML elements,
etc.) The document manipulation capabilities of these so-called tools
are primitive by all means.

software industry, the: unique industry where selling substandard
goods is legal and you can charge extra for fixing the problems.
