thanks for showing me where it is, Chris. I'm the opposite, though;
despite being a keyboard fanatic, my default setting when I'm in front
of a slideshow is to click the mouse. I suspect a whole generation of
PowerPoint victims are the same way. So, I think it's gotta stay.

Yeah, thought of that, but not the right way: just realized the Chris
Heilmann sent something (Volkan? was it you, Volkan?) anyway, a groovy
popup preview feature that just might do the trick.

Probably the answer there, if I can make it work.

Thanks for the spark, Chris.
