Jesper is on it and pretty soon our cursor motion will be on a par with MS
Word97. They have the same bug about not putting a character in the first
column of superscripted run. (I had to use MS Word last last night so I
took the opportuning to test things. I was very happy to see we are doing
underlining better than than them. Word underlines of subscripts go
through the bottom of the subscripted text. Ours sit just beneath it)
