With anno/editmark loaded, messages seem to magically acquire annotation stuff.   That is, if you create a message editor, create in it a plain text message, and punch deliver, the system thinks you have created a formatted message and puts up its "send plain/formatted text" menu.  Problems':'
1.  Filling in the menu to say plain text all the time is a minor nuisance.'
2.  If by accident you say send formatted, the formatting (even if there are no annotations in what you typed) will be anno/editmark formatting, which means that if the recipient of the message doesn''t have anno loaded, he''s dead meat in the street.'
3.  That of course means that you can''t send a message with TEdit formatting alone.'
Would like':'
a.  Would like anno/editmark stuff not to creep unbidden into documents.'
b.  Might also be nice to expand and revise the meaning of the send plain/formatted text menu when anno/editmark is loaded':'
Send plain text': strip out all Tedit and anno stuff'
Send formatted': strip out all anno stuff'
Send annotated': send as is.'

I think this is because the style information that the entered text is NEW is being kept.  I changed the default on EDITMARK to be "don''t keep changes" which should fix it.'
