Definitely on my "todo" list.  Based upon the Mail source and observed 
functionality I can write an EBNF syntax for message submission.  After 
that, can think about revisions to lift a constraint or two.

Currently working to understand this section in the _Using_Gadgets_ 
Apart from the occurance in this tutorial, where does the help icon 
appear in Gadgets?
The second to last paragraph.

ETH Oberon / LinuxA2 Gen. 32-bit, rev.9799 has Gadgets.Panel; no 
BasicGadgets.Panel.  A renaming from an earlier release?  An error in 
the tutorial?

> ... all these gadgets are fitted with a 'custom' attribute

A gadget can have multiple attributes; correct?  How is an attribute, 
other than the first, selected in Columbus? Can anyone succeed to have 
Columbus display the Tutorial attribute for a Gadget?

Thanks,                              ... P.L.
