For my Emacs xtalk-mode, I've done syntax coloring, and have moved on 
now to code indention. I'm reading the revFormatField handler of the 
revScriptEditor (IDE editor) however I'm not understanding the code 
very well.

Do you have a transcript code indent algorithm/handler you can share? I 
would rewrite it in lisp to go in my xtalk-mode.
