Opening Another file in VIM

Every day I learn to love my favourite editor/ide/programmer's swiss army knife just a little bit more.

Today's reason? Courtesy of this tip I discovered the command "gf". It opens the file whose name is currently under your cursor in another buffer ready for editing. It's a godsend when editing, for instance, the HTML for a web page. Wherever there is a link to another page just place your cursor after the HREF and press the magic keys.
