Aw, Thanks Bob!

I'll share my stuff with anyone.

It is still in development though - lots of functions that would need to
be created to make it a worthy editor. I am actually creating it for an
idea I have for creating customized fairy tails with real kids as the
stars -  where the kids act out their parts in front of a chroma-key
wall, and then I can print out and bind the book for them right there on
the spot.

Jonathan sent me this stack and I've just had a quick look. It  
definitely works. Thanks so much Jonathan!

I had thought of a similar approach, but where each paragraph was in  
its own field, but only a thought exercise. The approach Jonathan has  
taken is like a frame based document system, and the text flows  
through it. This would be particularly useful when RunRev is the  
delivery mechanism as well as the authoring system. You'd get a very  
nice publishing-like feel to it. Pretty snappy too.

It would be worth pestering Jonathan to make this more widely  
available :-)
