I agree that any change to a token's behavior should be documented.  If 
it changed during RunRev's tenure, it should be noted in their 
Dictionary entry for the min token.

I do see one change there noted as introduced in v1.1, but that's for 
something else.  I don't see any mention of this change in their docs.

Shari, I'd suggest submitting this as a documentation request to BZ.  It 
may be minor, but it's still worth addressing to keep people well 
informed, esp. those who've used earlier versions or are have HyperCard 
experience.
