I'd like to say first that I really appreciate the careful and gentlemanly
way that the team handles our User issues and requests. It is a real credit
to the professional way you are all handling the TexWorks project and a real
refreshment to find in IT things. Awesome!

OK, this raises another few questions:
* Did you try quitting and restarting Tw? I experienced some weird
behavior just now (the tags did show up, but didn't get updated when I

Google Code page)? This may be related to Alain's (experimental) Lua
build, in which case we'd have to investigate in a totally different
I will have to do that (would mean for now no scripting extension) -
*- regrettably*, as I have been using Alain's Lua build to actually help me
- I have needed to be able to easily insert custom LaTeX tags, and certain
text editing features, and his Lua bindings provided the needed mechanism -
one which allowed me to easily update any LaTeX tag changes I make.
Although I have to say I still find Lua unfamillar and a little bit of a
challenge, say to a more standard or historical EMCA type language, but it
does seem to offer some things that may be EMCA dialects don't yet, and
these may be imortant enough to perservere with.
