      Hello everyone,

      I've just uploaded a pre-release copy of NoteTab Light 4.86. You can get it
      from the following link (size 1,483 KB):


      Changes include...

      * The "Help/Replace MS Notepad" menu command is now available under Windows
      2000 and XP. I hope it works <g>.

      * Unicode files are now automatically detected on loading and converted to
      ANSI for display in the editor. Note that the process will not convert
      characters correctly if they are not available in the current ANSI
      character set. By default, Unicode files are opened in Read-Only mode. See
      the "Protect Unicode Files" setting described below.

      * New "Protect Unicode Files" setting on the General tab of the Options
      dialog. When NoteTab opens Unicode files, it has to convert them to the
      ANSI character set, which contains much fewer characters. As a result, the
      conversion process may drop non-ANSI and cause the loss of information.
      When this setting is checked, Unicode files are opened in Read-Only mode,
      which protects the file from changes. If you know that your Unicode
      documents will not loose important information during the conversion
      process, you can uncheck this option in order to open such files in
      editable mode.

      * File Security attributes should now be correctly preserved when a file is
      saved with backups enabled.

      * New command-line parameter "/DDE=True or False" to switch off or
      re-enable DDE communication with Internet Explorer, Netscape, and Opera
      browsers. This is useful on some faulty Windows ME systems that hang when
      DDE is used.

      * Search Disk now automatically save matches in Favorites file "Search
      Disk.fvr", so the files can easily be opened at any time until the next search.

      * Incremental Clipbook backups using the tilde are now automatically hidden
      to avoid their appearing in the Clipbook bar.

      * When searching through subdirectories, directories with the hidden,
      read-only, or system attributes were skipped. This is now fixed.

      * Fixed a glitch in the regexp engine. A replace operation would sometimes
      fail if the search pattern ended with the $ token.

      * Fixed a glitch in Join Lines command that failed to join lines containing
      a single character.

      * Fixed a glitch in the Strip HTML command that failed to produce a blank
      line when encountering a double line break <br><br>.

      * Fixed a glitch in the Clip command "^!Select nnn", which failed to work
      properly if the range reached a non-empty last line.

      * Fixed a glitch in the "Ordered List" and "Unordered list" clips from the
      HTML Clipbook library.

      If you find any glitches, please report them to <bugs@...> as soon
      as possible so that they can be fixed in the final release. Thanks in
      advance for your feedback.
