Thanks Dale. That clears up a few mysteries for me, too. I once had
a corrupted Xy file, though xy had not corrupted it. Xy was
truncating the file somewhere in the middle, though notepad showed
the rest of the file. I recall finding an OEF marker in the middle
of the file, in notepad of course, and moving it to where it
belonged. After that Xy displayed the whole file again. I remember
being puzzled that Xy hadn't deleted all the text after the EOF
marker, but just hadn't displayed it. Now it makes sense; Xy was
apparently trying to treat all the text after the EOF marker as meta-data.
Ah, of course. That's why XY stopped printing at xxx instead of going
all the way to zzz. Just thinking this through a bit, all my files
are chapters I'm constantly writing through. They also contain a lot
of material that has been pasted from various programs. Makes sense
now that such files would be candidates for misplaced EOF markers.
All I have to do is read them quickly in NoteTab to clean them up.
