What is the best way for naive users to remotely edit perl code?

Situation:		They are SSHed into a remote Linux box.
Possibly:		They can invoke X apps. (See previous posting)
Bonus points:	Syntax highlighting, IDE.

Some possibilities:

Vi, vim?
	What I use, but will send my class running screaming for the hills.

	Need an editor not an OS, sends me running screaming for the hills.

EDT?	Never heard of this till one of my users requested it,
		 fortunately joe emulates it.

Joe?		With or without emulation.



Other?	Got any suggestions?
