Nope, for the online stuff I'm still using a willfully-outdated version of GNU Emacs. Raw ASCII all the way.
I've been thinking about doing some stuff with a more presentation-friendly style, now that I've fallen so far out of the habit of posting things to Usenet that I'll probably never catch up - it might be fun, for example, to do a website-only story with some fontology and embedded graphics, a la the BPGD files - but the limitations of HTML, my disinclination to spend the time learning CSS, and the general pain-in-the-ass value of doing markup when I'm trying to be creative don't lend themselves to that. The closest I've gotten is the City of Heroes/City of Villains stuff over in Misc, and those only got that treatment because they're so short.
