on your keyboard with your shoulders relaxed. No reaching for the mouse or arrow keys.
Many of the emacs key bindings are supported so, for example:
control f moves cursor forward one character
control b moves cursor backward one character
control n moves cursor down one line
control p moves cursor up one line
These are standard in all mac text fields as well as TextMate. No cursor keys are needed
and they also work with the shift to select, etc..
