hi Allan
Thanks for the rapid follow-up -- (one of) the great things about TM!
I tried Joeren's multiple escapes to no avail (perhaps didn't apply 
properly and a bit rushed) but will wait for the next beta. Thanks to 
all for their tips.

What's interesting to me (and I'm sure others have noted this) is how 
TM is serving as a model for a rapid-feedback system for software 
design. Perhaps the lack of this (not Barebones's fault, mind you, 
given their older roots) explains why BBEdit is so currently bloated?
