The test is invalid; the 2nd quoted line overrides the 1st.

Therefore you don't see the results of your scrolling code.

To debug your scroll calc, first comment out the set hilitedlines.

Easy testing: use an ask, input either line # or font name.

(To test hilite, either forget about scroll calc, or do it AFTER.)

Watch out about adding versus subtracting field height. Why add?

No more mysteries. Or at least fewer. :)
