Try installing the ExternalEditor product.
Allows you to open zope documents with the editor of your choice,
even different editors for different doc types.
You just create a new doc as usual in the zope management interface,
then click on its little "pencil" icon, and it pops up your editor.
Save the file, and it goes into zope. Very very nice.
You do have to install client software on every computer where you
want to use it, but it's not hard to do.
