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

Yesterday, I posted a comparison of support for rich text tables in the Midas Rich Text 3.61 and Notes 7.x.  After thinking about it, I wondered if the following format would be preferable.  This is just a partial table, but I will update with a complete table if people like the format.  The two changes are that the color now indicates the support or lack thereof, and I indicate the methods or properties or technotes which support such a feature in Midas.  What do you think?
