Perhabs you should look at the editor widget i have upload to
ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/contrib/ instead. There's no hidding/showing
comments yet, but it shows the use of user-data associated to the text
The hidding/showing of comments, and putting links in the text is a
good idear, and I'm going to add support for it to the editor in a day
or two. (I'm away from my box this weekend, so I won't have it done
until Tuesday or Wednesday).
I would really like your thoughts about it. What should be done? What
should be supported? How general should it be? What should the
interface (both programmers and users) be like?
