First, thanks to Detlev Offenbach for a such a wonderful IDE! :^)

2) The automatic syntax check every time a file is saved is great. Alas, PTL
are apparently checked against the standard Python syntax, since every time I

first "def fun [html] ():" line of the template.
3) I agree with a remark made by someone a while ago, the autocompletion box

The box displaying parameter definitions for functions and methods is a little
too persistent, too.
Thanks again for a great tool, and keep up the good job!
