Unfortunately, I'm in the UK.  Thanks for the offer though.

I'm already working on hacking the renderer so that it doesn't discard

could just render from the source each time, but that doesn't allow you
to treat the document as a tree (needed for style sheets and DHTML support).

What's wrong with ^G, btw, since that's already the quit-key for aborting
other activities, so why not for quitting textareas?

If there's already an internal editor, why isn't that used for textareas?
(or have I missed a great swathe of discussions?)
