      No, this is normal dah11us..

      The underscore _ is a special character in NoteTab... It can define a default value in a list, it can make a temporary variable permanent, and in the case you're referring to, when used at the beginning of a clip name, it signifies that the clip is not "runable" by itself.. That it has to be called by another clip, and to do that, you drop the underscore when you call it. Clip names that begin with _ should be dim in color unless you've changed the default colors for them.
