Really? You mean you never use Ctrl-Right and Left Arrows to skip word-by-word in word processors/text editors? Perhaps an awkward movement at first, but something I think most people have grown accustomed to.

Right arrow moves to the right, left arrow to the left. Not easy?

Well I'd definitely have to concede to either one of your preferences. Sometimes I think I'm a power user, but then I read notes from the two of you... I'm just a piker!

No problem... just suggestions. I'm actually not opposed to your's or John's methods - if *any* of these make it into Ztree, I'll be happy. Whatever the keys he chooses, I'm sure they'll become second-nature to me, just as all the others have become. I'm becoming a Ztree-Machine! Ahhh!

I started reading through your "Detailed Proposal", but it's 3am here and I'm tired... I'll finish it later. ;)
