a loose reference to it somewhere, (not sure why I ignored it perhaps because the reference was couched in someone's techspeak I didn't understand) in the midst of a long fruitless google search that turned up nothing but a skimpy reference to the fact that somebody named Uw...uh...hmm...had added support for it and a longwinded discussion purportedly about it but really aimed at developers, god bless 'em...but now I see that it is carefully clearly and meticulously spelled out in the EmbeddedObjects (what does that mean? Sounds like something to do with graphics or something? Why is there no space in the middle? Why should I be looking there?) manual even though the user's guide doesn't mention it. In other words, I am a fool, thanks for adding support for it, it is cool, you are da bomb, and now I see how it works. yippie. :-) ps why does gmane balk at lines over 80 characters? I mean who writes paragraphs with less that 80 characters?
