This has always been the intention. The progam, as far as possible, puts
everything where it should be, or if that's not possible, in the most
likely position. Hence the stick-figure template and the automatic
positioning of signs and punctuation marks. To my mind, this is the only
way to make SW typable in a sense similar to typing oral text.

Yes it did  :)

Not sure whether it would be OK to scan it in or what. Maybe one of us
should ask!
