Thank you very much, Neil: that was it. I've bound autocompletion
to alt-space, so nothing's lost, really. I did not even know that
was available! That .cfg file is definitely worth a look.

I am, and I have no idea what MS calls a Belgian(comma) kbd;
that's got to be Belgian Dutch. BTW, at the above url lives a
rare example of something actually useful coded in javascript...

So did BeOS, but I know that's not helpful; sorry.

Thanks again -both for this quick answer and the nice scintilla/scite
pair- and regards,
