A TextMate tip for Emacs users

Update: The only place I've seen this mentioned is in a comment on the MacroMates blog.

My Linux box is down due to a hardware failure; a cheap SATA controller to be specific. Perhaps that will be a story for another day. As a result I've been working on my MacBook and back in TextMate. Old habits. And I haven't gotten comfortable in any of the OS X Emacsen yet.

This gave me an opportunity to accidentally discover some shortcuts in TextMate. A result of the Emacs shortcuts that my fingers are already wired to, here are some TextMate keyboard shortcuts that may or may not be documented (I need to RTFM some day).

I think TextMate may have helped ease me into Emacs without me even knowing. I had my suspicions that Allan was an Emacs fan and now I'm certain of it. I keep finding things in one that the other has, which makes switching between them easy. Well done Allan.
