Thanks Ammon, but as you can see by my post made just a minute ago, I
did receive a good answer. I know of the how-tos, but they wouldn't
have helped me enough without Cyphre's suggestion. I'd tried
modified feel/redraw's already, but they failed because I didn't know
meant "system/view". Also, I didn't know "do-face face none"
was what was required to evaluate a style's block. Neither of those
bits of information will be found in the Feel how-to, or, I suspect,
any View/VID docs supplied by RT.
Yes, in case you're wondering, I've spent a awful lot of time getting
this simple-thing-that-should-be-simple thing to work. (;
