This is great. Now we're getting references to the manual like Biblical 
quotes! :D

I would concur with John, that the Story Editor has its uses. As long as 
you do not need WYSIWYG, it is very convenient for adding/editing 
material from the keyboard. I find navigating the frame in Edit Contents 
mode sluggish. Also, in SE, you can edit the text in one place for a 
whole set of linked frames.

The main thing is to understand the limitations of each method.
