The simplest is already built into freebsd; it's called ee.  It has some 
keystroke help built into the top of the editor display.   Another easy 
editor to use is joe (Joe's own editor).  It also has a displayed keystroke 
help section, and, while it's not vi, it is a fairly powerful (yet fairly) 
simple editor.
