I'm sure that the reference is to the script window. I've been using Uwe 
Ligges's WinEdt extensions, which work very well, but it would be nice if 
students didn't have to buy or install additional software to get some of 
this functionality. In particular, the ability to perform basic editing 
functions in the file-display window would be convenient.
