1) How do I do that?
2) How did you even *think* to do that?

The dictionary, user guide, web are devoid of references to messageMessages
and revCel . . .

I'm managing to catch this one, and do some updating.   Now I have to
intercept tab, etc.
to do sane navigations . . .   a simple regal was able to change each of
these into a handler with 4 variables, a breakpoint, and a pass . . . but
none seem to fire as I maneuver around it (they *would* reach the group
holding the table, wouldn't they?

This one I have trapped already:

So I am (usually) able to recall.
