Question: External editor for creation and editing of Maple docs

Due to the seemingly persistent tabbing-problem, I would like to learn how to work with Maple using an external editor: If I could recreate my packages using an external editor, thereby avoiding both the tabbing-issue and the blowup associated with what I call the 'XML-contamination of documents', and from them create the associated libraries, then I would be satisfied. For then I would use only a single document in Maple worksheet mode as a front end. Therefore:

Can anyone point me to some information concerning 1.) choice of an editor, and 2.) how to use an external editor to create packages and libraries in Maple?
