Lissa,

The highlighting request isn't something that I'd characterize as
nitpicking, though the behavior you've found is what was intended.  And it's
very difficult for me to imagine a general solution, if we think about the
problem beyond its manifestation with tabs.

When it matters exactly what formatting codes and style tags are in and out
of your selection, I recommend working in coded view.

Even so, I've put this request on file.  We'll not reflect on it further in
this beta cycle -- it would be too great a change now.

Subject: [duxhelp] crash; highlight color

Hi,

I was doing some 6-key editing in a simple dxb file (some music braille
directly pasted in from a generated Goodfeel file) when it crashed for no
discernable reason. What puzzled me was that the Duxbury program remained on
the task bar, but the rest of the program was completely frozen; and, when I
went to the task manager to force a quit (Windows 2000), it did not show up.
The only way I could force quit was to restart the computer. Peter, I can
send you the file if that would help. 
I don't see why it crashed, as it is a very short, ordinary braille
document, except that I hadn't saved in a while. :)

Second: I know this is nit-picky, but I noticed that when I hold down the
shift key to highlight text, the highlight color (black in my case) does not
show up when moving over a tab. I know it's not a life-or-death issue, but
it did seem odd to me that I was holding down the shift key and I could not
tell whether my text was highlighted (highlit?) until I moved the cursor
(with the arrow keys) over an actual letter.
