attached to a range.

- XCEL_FormatCondition_Property_Set: Sets one of the format condition
- XCEL_Application_Path_Set (Macintosh only) Allows the possibility to
define the full path of the MS Excel application to control. Useful if
several versions of MS Excel are installed on the computer.
- XCEL_Range_HyperLink_Address_Get: Returns the address of the first
hyperlink attached to the specified cell.

2. Some changes:

- The Excel VB or AS codes is no longer compressed in the custom
properties for avoiding a cross platform problem.
- A description for the XCEL_Range_Rect_Get function has been added in
the documentation.
- In the documentation we have now a new "Parameters" button. This
button allows to set the path of the MS Excel application to use with
the documentation. (Macintosh)

3. And fixes:

- Quotes could cause errors with the XCEL_Range_Values_Get function (Macintosh)
