Yes; you are quite right, of course! Well, having been corrected I went 
to the
dev's site and, to be honest, learnt nothing I didn't already know 
beyond that
it is NOT cross-platform.

I do hope Kevin, Mark and Co. are not waking up in the night with cold 
it is certainly not worth it for Baycard.

The list of 'widgets' looks just like the list of Controls from 
Livecode; the only difference
(and it is a signal difference) is that they are precoded with "Daddy 
knows best code"
and I, at least, have outgrown that mentality a while back (although to 
be fair to my
Father, I respect him and his opinions greatly). One cannot dive beneath 
the widgets
and fiddle around with the underpinnings .  .  . leaves me cold.


OK, OK; I did get mildly interested in 'Rich Text Editors'. And, one 
would suppose that
a paragraphable (wow; is that a real word?) text field might be 
somewhere on the horizon for
Livecode. Why do I remember mentioning something similar re Supercard a 
few years back?
