Peter,

While you are correct in your assumption that a full-featured Word 
Processing program is not currently possible in RunRev, I have written a 
pretty snappy script/html/css editor which can be found at:

http://www.altuit.com/webs/hemingway/HemTools/HTMLGadget.htm

It's not yet final, so some of the menus don't work correctly on Macs, 
but it 'gets the job done.'

The support for drag and drop and colorized script formatting is one of 
the cooler parts of HTMLgadget.

best,

Chipp
