	Yes! thankee much.  My only other question is if Abiword
	has a place where to set the margins.  Moving those 
	onscreen margin settings is dfficult, esp'ly when I'll
	have several places of [BLOCKQUOTE]  [/BLOCKQUOTE]
	that need to be indented.  (This "blockquote" feature 
	is missing even on OO.)

	Thanks again!  I'd never have spotted this ujntil 2087 :-)
