I'm sure I'd be getting the better end of that bargain. :) I'll send you my
little test project so you can see what I've done. Caveat Emptor. :)

Right. The VB editor, as an example, doesn't colorize the line you are
currently editing. It colorizes, and reformats, it when you leave the line.
I'm highly confident that they aren't keeping a rendered version of all the
data lines you can't see. For large files that would be unmanagable.
Illusion is the key. Perception is reality.
