Default A text editor for zipped files with subdirectories

Hi folks

I tried searching but either there was no entry or I didn't hit the right search combination.

I am looking for a program that can edit text files that are in a zip without me having to unzip and rezip. Unfortunately the files needing work are one layer down in a subdirectory ie xx.zip/tvv/target.htm. Note the file contents are plain text that include html tags and has a "htm" file extension not "txt".

I had a text editor that would edit these zipped files but the file author has changed the file format to now place them in a subdirectory as above and the editor can no longer "see" the files as it doesn't recognise subdirectories.

Thanks in advance for any assistance with this

Not going to happen.
Even if you don't do it yourself, the editor will need to do it in the background.

Your request must be missing some information because I have been doing this for many years in Windows 7 and 8. I can edit text files at any subdirectory level because Windows allows me to traverse the subdirectory tree in standard zipped directories.

What operating system are you using? I'm assuming that it is Windows but are you using an old version?
If you are using Windows, then are you using a text mode text editor, ie. it runs in the Command Prompt window and does not use the graphical interface? Are you wanting to use command-line parameters to specify the file path?

I'd forgotten that as I have it turned off - on purpose.
