Thanks, Craig. I am not familiar with the building svn versions, but I may
try that. However, I completed the job using the Story Editor without any
problems, whatsoever. That lends credibility to my assertion that in-frame
editing is the problem. So, since I have, and do, use the Story Editor in
several past versions without any difficulties and a great deal of ease, I
think I will stay with it and see if there is an RC2 that fixes the in-frame
editing problem, or a stable 1.4.0 release that may do the same. But, iMO,
RC1 falls somewhat short of a releasable new stable version.
