      Create a mydoc.emf file (preferably in the same directory as "userid".emf),
      put you my-fhook-doc macro into this file (with any other chances such as
      additional hilighting etc), save the file and restart ME.

      When you first load a doc file the macro file hkdoc.emf is executed, this in
      turn executes mydoc.emf if it exists (which it now does). Then ME executes the
      macro fhook-doc in the new doc buffer, which in turn executes the macro
      my-fhook-doc if it exists. Simple.....

      You can either use commands execute-buffer or execute-file to 'reload' just
      "userid".emf, or better still use user-setup (main menu Help -> User Setup)
      and use the Current button which will re-initialise the whole setup (remember
      to save changed buffers first).

      Also note that existing buffers, such as your doc buffer, will not be
      re-initialised. You will been to use execute-buffer/execute-file on hkdoc.emf
      to re-initialise the buffer setup macros, i.e. fhook-doc and my-fhook-doc etc,
      and then execute the command fhook-doc in the doc buffer. (Perhaps I should
      change the functionality behind the User Setup Current button to do this...).
