Hi Ken,

In this case Jacque is talking about saving the global information in a
control or a property so the information is not lost when the MetaCard
engine quits.  The global can then be reset when the stack preOpens.  The
time the stack takes to open and close will increase by the time required
to fetch the values/put them into the global and vice versa; butwhile
opened, there is no degredation in performance.
