Well, there you are. To each his own, I guess. Although, I'm not sure 
that I have read any colorized "prose" lately. ;)

Your point about "remove colors" is a good one. Sometimes Rev sort of 
loses the ability to "properly" colorize. It might be helpful to shut it 
off, to turn it back on again, and perhaps get better results. I find 
that in some longer scripts, I have to "tab" each individual line, in 
order to get it to correctly colorize.
