Hi all,

I thought I would just add to this thread that I've been working with
Leslie and her group on this particular question, and it is subtle. At
least, I've been struggling to figure out how best to manage the
interactions of the single text%/multiple editor-canvas%es so that you
get the impression of two pages of text side-by-side... and, perhaps
most importantly, can then scroll up and down through the pair so it
seems like you are "flipping pages." They have investigated more than
one way to achieve this effect, and this seems like the most viable
approach so far.

Perhaps if my MrEd-Fu was better, this question would be obvious to
me, but their design goal has stumped me for the moment as well.
