TextMate lets the user bind any key combination to a snippet or command, thereby overriding the default behavior of that hotkey. This is useful. I’m trained to type option‐shift‐hyphen for em dashes (and option‐hyphen for en dashes)— but in the character‐encoding wasteland of the web, this is risky. So instead I’ve got snippets for the corresponding HTML entities
– bound to those keys whenever I’m in an HTML scope.
If Goodin wanted to be reasonable or accurate, he could have written a story titled “Some Guy Double‐Clicked a Trojan Horse Virus for Mac OS X but It Didn’t Actually Spread to Anyone Else”, but what kind of story would that be? OK, it’d be a true story, but it wouldn’t be a good story.
