      Hi Paul and Don,

      I use the second window pane option all the time.. It works great when I'm answering a letter (I use NoteTab as my word processor and store all my incoming correspondence in an outline file).. The letter I'm responding to is on one side, while my reply to it is on the other..

      There's really no deep secret to using it, the trick is setting the correct file to be the "Second Window" file. In your situation Paul, set your CSS file to be the Second window file, it should show up in the right pane and all other files you open should stay in the left..

      The one thing I wish the second window option would do, would be to support drag and drop operations from one window to the other...

      John :)
