Hi Jim,

I shouldn't be answering for bowerbird, but, being Sunday eve, he may not be
around his Mac for awhile. tenLines% is the number of lines in the editfield
whose Record was accessed by its handle using TEHANDLE - a form of derefencing
that provides access to the various fields in the record. It has two dots
because it is a field in a field. Actually, I thing bowerbird may have made a
mistake, since the previous field teh.teNLines seems to provide the number of
lines in the referenced edit field. See page 305 of the FBII Reference Manual.
I'm sure bowerbird'll correct me if I am wrong.

*=}

Hope I was clear enough.
