HomerKit 1.2
Released April 25, 2007

Fixed the Repeat Line command, Control+Y.  Fixed the GoToScriptDefinition
command, Control+F2, not working in JAWS 8.  Fixed the executable
installer not working when "Run" rather than "Save" is chosen from the IE
download dialog.  Fixed Control+F and Control+Shift+F not always focusing
on the edit box of the JAWS virtual find dialog.

Added two commands (with the same key assignments as TextPal).  Use the
Grab Urls command, Alt+Shift+G, to copy a list of urls to the clipboard,
starting with the url of the page and followed by all url references
within it.  The Web Download command, Alt+Shift+W, lets you pick one or
more files to download from url references of the page.  Each item of the
multiple selection list box shows both the clickable text of the url and
its file name.  After choosing files, you are prompted for the target
folder on disk.

The downloading is done by a new edition to HomerKit, a small utility
called WebGet.exe (written in PowerBasic).  The utility is now also used
by the Elevate Scripts command.  If WebGet.exe is found in the user script
folder, the command uses it instead of creating and running a temporary
VBScript file, which some antivirus software deletes before it can run.
Feedback is sought on the reliability of this new approach to updating
