We have been concerned for some time with the lack of rigorous experimental evaluation of design options chosen for tools used by software engineers. In a series of studies of various evaluation techniques we conducted an empirical usability study of a design issue (choice of editing paradigm for language-based editors) that has reached a 'subjective stalemate' in the research community. This usability study, although limited to some extent by sample size and user type, has shown little advantage to either tree-building or text-recognition and probably indicated that some hybrid of the two is more appropriate.
