Thanx, Martin. I do plan to do some poking around. One thing
I found is disabling that "enhanced file dialogs" must have also
disabled the hot key, ctrl-w, or else it wasn't implemented in this
version of WP. (ctrl-W should bring up the set of tables of
special characters. It is available from a drop-down menu,
but ctrl-w was handy, and I'm not a person who likes hot-keys.)
