have it set up to scroll down the page a page at a time (i.e. each
click of the scroll-wheel is equivalent to pressing the Page Down key
on the extended keyboard). So, I use the scroll-wheel for slow and
fine scrolling and click on the scroll-wheel for faster scrolling.

- John, Paul, and Randy, thank you for the mousing advice. I do like to
use right-clicking to access contextual menus, though in Classic it is
mainly to access FinderPop from the menubar. Many aspects of FinderPop
still work (for example, I keep DocCompare as well as some other
AppleScripts in the FinderPop Items Menu for easy access while using
WP). I assume it is still available somewhere on the Web if anyone
wants to give it a try?
The scroll wheel alone makes me plug in the mouse more often lately,
though this makes more of a difference in OSX. Page Down seems as
though it will be the most useful way, for the way I work, to program
the scroll-wheel click. Thank you too for introducing me to Deja Menu.
I may try it with the mouse, though I still like to keyboard as much
as possible, and Deja Menu with its key combination is a nice
augmentation of OSX's full menu access. Don't know how I've missed
hearing about it all this time. Fringe benefit for me of being plugged
into the WPMac list. Tom
