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 :-)
