First, you are right that Cecilia's students have done some typing at
least - I know that for a fact - several of the teachers in Albuquerque
told me that...because the teachers themselves did not know how to do
that and they were impressed with their students' skills...

And yes...SW-EDIT saves all files in the .SWML format, instead of the
..SGN format, so if getting away from .SGN is important for some reason,
then perhaps the .SWML format will be the tool needed?...
