Just to add my comments: personally I use a combination of scroll (w/ 
o moving the caret -- which is ctrl-cmd-option arrow keys) and cmd-J  
to return, bookmarks, or the undo/redo trick -- but Gerd's approach  
does sound like a more elegant/universal solution, so I'd of course  
be happy to listen to his API requests (when I find time to do the  
initial plugin infrastructure -- which starts to look like an  
intermediate 1.1.1 release, perhaps with 1.1.2 doing syntax HL for  
printing, and then on to 1.2).
