the absence/presence of a preceding space takes care of the bulk of the 

I wonder if there could be key-mapping to use Alt-', Ctrl-', and 
Shift-Alt-', Shift-Ctrl-', since as far as I know these aren't used for 
anything else.
Is there a way to use Scripter to modify the contents of the text frame? 
(ie, are there commands in Scripter to do this?)
