Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I remember a time in my life when I was in really good shape, getting plenty of exercise, and feeling pretty good.  Then, I started something new for a little bit, snow shoeing, and discovered that I had muscles that clearly were not used as often as the others.  A couple of days of soreness followed. along with some satisfaction that those less frequently used muscles were finally getting a real workout.

This weekend (and yes, it is Saturday night), I have been working furiously, cleaning up CoexEdit, and I can assure you it uses some muscles that were there, but not much used, in the Midas engine.  Given the numerous companies successfully and happily using the Midas engine, whether the Midas LSXMidas C++ API or @Midas, to generate HTML, I would not have guessed there could be many bugs or shortcomings, but CoexEdit seems to stretch things in different ways, and it uses the HTML to rich text conversion as well as the rich text to HTML conversion, so both sides are exercised at once.

To make a long story short, I am going through my few days of soreness, so please be kind, but it is also clear that besides the improvements in CoexEdit, the rest of the Midas family is going to be in better shape as well.  I'll try to keep that in mind while I slog through the literal and figurative snow around here.
