Font effect query: Mac and Windows differences

I've tried the previously suggested traversalOn and it's working ok, for 
now... :) I'll have to look at what I'm going to do with the editor a 
little further to see which option works best depending on user input (I 
don't know if I will have to set it globally or locally). I'm still 
trying to figure out what consequences the commands have.

I'm just starting out on Transcript..!

I expected the text to be highlighted because on the development 
environment (OS X) it worked during testing and deployment.

I guess, like you said, I missed out on detailing other information 
(such as whether the filed is locked or not) because I assumed that 
there were no other differences between the platforms when the 
application is deployed. My Transcript knowledge is very limited at the 
moment so the commands I am using are picked up for the behaviour I 
expect the app to have, and not approaching it from the bottom up.
