      it seems that there is a glitch in input forms in that that the vertical
    cursor disappears after about 2000 lines in admittedly large input fields.
    I abuse input fields as simple editors in one of my applications and
    sometimes the user has to edit very long files. The cursor disappears but
    one can edit everything as usual ( only that you no longer know where you
    are). If I go back to lines < about 2000 it re-appears. I have no idea
    what can cause this effect. I have seen it specifically on SGI Irix 6.2;
    xforms 0.89. I have to check the Linux version still.

    Another question : Is there a hack or better yet a function that allows
    one to change the color of a single line in the input field ? I need this
    to indicate errors on a specific line. I think in multiline browsers it is
    possible but not in input fields.

    Thanks for any advice as usual,

    Y'all have a nice weekend.
