ahhh...scuse me...I'm kinda new here and I was envisioning an offline
editor as one that worked while you were NOT connected to the
mud...hence the title offline...I am a simple person and the idea of
an offline editor that is actually online while you are using it threw online editor with a GUI, now that I get.  Forgive my
ignorance of the lingo, but reckless misuse of proper semantics can
confuse as easily as misunderstood ones.

Either way I see what you are doing now and it does create an
interesting problem.  Thanks for the clarification of on vs. offline
