Thanks to Jens and his team for continuing EpiData development. 

I think new users would require a text editor which gives the different
data formats as EpiData Entry currently does via the field pick list
because new users would not be sufficiently familiar to use the correct
field formats when using some other text editor. In addition, the editor
used in EpiData Entry is a rather nice editor, superior (in my opinion)
to Notepad which perhaps most users would otherwise utilise. The Manager
seems to have the look and feel of the Windows Epi-Info with the
disadvantage in an outbreak situation of a lack of speed of database
construction if restricted to function keys and/or mouse clicks while
users may also not like having to utilise more than one package to
construct a database.
