Response to: text selection?

Well, supposedly, applications will report a "TEXT" type of selection to your CMI (if you look at the sample CMI source code from Apple, you can see code to trap this), but in practice, I've found that only a few applications do this. In fact, I haven't come accross a single Apple application that does, but all the Office v.X applications do! (Don't know about Office X 2004...)


As for invoking a selection from a CMI, I'm sure it's possible, but I've not had a chance to try it yet.
