Here's a task that ought to be easy for you MCL gods:
I need a scrolling static text dialog item containing
formatted text. By "formatted" I mean indented a-la
pretty-printing; I would also like to display some of
the text in bold and some of it plain, but can give
that up. Finally, I would prefer that text *not* wrap
to fit (I want to supply a horizontal scroll bar).
I have struggled with this for some time now and would
be quite grateful for tips. Thanks in advance.
