If you're on the clips list you know that I've been working on an
outline based clip helper. I had been thinking about adding other
types of reusable to script code to it. The only problem with using
clips to manage source code is the potential misinterpretation of
some characters in retrieved topics by the clip interpreter.
Semicolons caused issues in my clip syntax outline. Depending on what
you do with the outline text during retrieval, there could be issues
with other characters as well. As long as you're aware of it, these
issues can be overcome by using StrReplace to temporarily replace
the characters before and after various operations, and by treating
the source code as "code" rather than the text.
