Comma Question

In my Simplified manual, why are all the commas printed typeface, instead of written in by hand?  Is it that commas are supposed to be omitted when writing Gregg, and that they are just teaching me comma usage for transcription purposes?  Or is there something later in the book that I haven’t come across yet?…

Books, Books, Books!! What’ve You Been Seeding Your Mind With Lately?!

So here…during a time that would be much better spent working on Greggory, I’m coming up with topics for discussion! (Don’t worry…it’s still underway! I’m currently reworking a more compartmentalized OOP implimentation so I can incorperate the outline rendering in many different portions of any program easily…for those nerds that understood that…NERDS I say…you’re NERDS!!)

Editing messages?

Hey…am I missing something big here, or is there no way to edit your own messages? You should be able to…but I don’t know. Is it just an option John’s forgotten to turn on? Am I just going blind and it’s been there in front of me the whole time? Is it a hidden option?…
