This brings up a question I've had -- how do you delete sections of text while in
the composition window? I've often just wanted to include parts of an article.
However, if I include the article, I have to delete the unwanted portions one
char at a time. I've tried highlighting unwanted text and typing, or hitting the
Delete or Backspace key .. no go. I've looked thru the manual entry and not seen
anything (tho I may have missed it).

Suggestion: There's probably an easy way to do this, known by millions. Please
check ahead and see is someone else has already answered the question befor
posting a reply. This is my little attempt to reduce net clutter. Thanks in
