RE: st: RE: RE: RE: list subjects with a similar value

MS-Word I understand to be a word processor. Recall that many members of Statalist do not use and certainly are not expert in Windows or Microsoft products generally.

In Vim, the way that seems to be most natural is a Unix way. You can have two files open in two windows and set it so that differences are highlighted. So, one could be a previous version and the other a working version.

I gather that Word behaves differently.

In general, good text editors will have something loosely similar. None that I know of regards it as a virtue to emulate Word.
