I am giving the SciTE editor a try. I don't see it treating VHDL files
as anything other than text. In various places I see that VHDL is
allegedly supported, but I can't figure out how this works.

Any thoughts?

Remove the 'vhdl' entry from the imports.exclude section in
SciTEglobal.properties.

I'll also say, I tried SciTE for a while and didn't love it. It wraps
the same Scintilla backend that both Notepad++ (Windows only) and Geany
(cross platform and my current editor of choice) do, but in a very "I am
just a tutorial on how to use this" kind of way.

Not to restart the editor wars (M-0 C-k), but if SciTE is holding appeal
for you then you should give Geany a look.

I'm not going anywhere until I figure out how to use this damn thing.
Right now I am fighting the fonts. The default font is proportional and
so is not suitable for code. I can't figure out how to tell it to use a
monospaced font by default. The font selected by the monospaced option
in the menu is not as clear to me (I don't have great vision) and I
can't figure out how to change that.

I really can't find much documentation that actually explains how to use
the damn thing!!!
