The problems between using Text Menu / Property Ins | Contents are 
huge. I don't know why they are different but linking is just one of 
the problems. Another is in HTMLStyle RTFStyle etc. as well as 
cross-platform issues with fonts chosen from each method.

Apparently they treat text differently and it is real confusing.

I try to "just use the text menu while in the Contents Property Pane" 
approach and don't use the text menu out side of it.

FWIW
