Oh, sorry -- I see the difference now. I was just so happy to get rid of all
the problems. Having data appear to be there on top of other data that was
actually there was the final straw of weirdness. You can still select and
edit text without needing the cell to select like it does with a table
object and not having all those bugs and problems is just wonderful. I
highly recommend to anyone to never use the table object.
