Just for the record: I exclusively use jEdit for several weeks now and 
did quite a lot of actual proofs. My personal opinion: the user 
experience is much nicer than with emacs

* I did not have any complete hangs yet (as with emacs)
* the whole appearance is much nicer (remember, this is my personal
opinion): font, highlighting, ...
* not to forget the browsability (from constants to their
definitions; from ML functions to their modules)
* checking a single theory (in non-batch mode) is MUCH faster than
with emacs

I would not for the world go back to emacs. (Maybe I should mention that 
before Isabelle I did not use emacs at all, so it was quite annoying to 
have to learn an "operating system" when I just needed an editor ;)).
