Sounds ok to me. We would like to see the changes and possibly include
this. It would seem necessary to be able to Update Text as well if the
file is updated when the document is open, although Im not sure how you
have handled formatting application to the text.

HTML import is only in CVS, do you mean you are working with CVS or the
unused HTML import code in 1.2. Its improved in CVS if so. The import
already creates paragraph styles for the HTML tags, but as above, any
enhancements, please send them along and we can consider and hopefully
include in CVS and then maybe in 1.2.1.
