A few minor suggestions...

    Most trivial: device menu Tools/Interface has item "Word Warp". I imagine that is a sort of self-defining warp of "wrap"! BTW do the wrap options apply merely to the display and not add any new-lines to the source file (as I would expect)?

    How about an extra option in at least some of the MsgBox variations which include a "Help" button to invite a context-sensitive explanation of the exception condition or consequences. (I'm assuming that the MsgBox call would be then be written in a loop-until-not-returning-cHelp.)

    I got into difficulties by not realising that the "Not" operator is more like a function call and has to have "Not ()" as the Help says. I had assumed that, as elsewhere, it was a unary operator and would be applied using operator rules to determine its operand. But the compiler did not complain, and it took me a while to realise why run-time exceptions were being thrown. (It didn't help that I was using the one-line form of the If statement.

    Very good comments.
    The first one is a spelling bug and will be fixed ASAP. The wrap option doesn't affect the source file.
