I didn't need it. It did nothing. Here's how I happened to put it in my
home computer's keyboard file. When I bought a Toshiba laptop 18 months ago I
found that the cursor keys wouldn't work in Xywrite. Xyquest technical support
and folks in one of the Xywrite conferences told me to try putting NI before
CU, CD etc. It didn't work, eventually I found a solution, but I never
bothered to take the NIs out. Since Xyquest recommends using NI before cursor
commands when one is having trouble getting cursor keys to work, there may be a
fair number of people out there who need the fix. I didn't need the workaround
in stack.pm, I needed to recall that I had NI before my cursor commands, that
it was superfluous and that it could make trouble.
>Yes, Hints are case-sensitive. It's a feature.
I guess one man's feature is another man's pain in the neck. Or is there a
method to your madness? Do you use caps for some commands and lower-case
letters for others so that the hint function can distinguish between commands
that might have the same letters?
