Description: I tried to use the IMNAME inspector to look at documentation for the function INFILECOMS?.  Whenever I got to typing the ?, I got a repeat of the prompt.  This is happening under PROMPTFORWORD.  Putting % in front didn''t do anything.  If there isn''t an escape for typing in ?, there should be!'

PROMPTFORWORD uses ↑V as a quote character, though not in the same way as the T read table or TTYIN.'
