modifying the file that was opened is one thing. That seems to be
common, but opening a "file save" dialog or "file open" dialog is
another matter entirely, as is saving to other files.

Oddly, my web browser of choice has a built-in source editor, which
makes moneylog.html a nifty tool--too bad it's too under-featured for
me. But in any case, if browsers could open and save text files
themselves, like mine (Omniweb for Mac OSX), this wouldn't even be an
issue for Ed. ;-)
