Yes, this is to be expected.

The highlighing is working on the displayed code only. If the start of a 
c-style comment is before the start of displayed code, then it won't appear 
commented out :( I have no plans to fix this. You could use the CTRL-M 
feature to comment out a block, provided it's C++ code.

Oh? - this can't be happening :-) What exactly do you see here?

That's good to hear, but "reasonably" solid? Anything specific? I know of 
only one problem that can cause a crash but no data is lost. (probably there 
are others).

And the KHTMLSettings are not done. However, I have limited energy left - it 
would be good if another could look into doing this. It can't be that 
difficult, (even though it looked pretty weird stuff to me...)


PS I'm assuming you're using the latest cvs version.
