Only if your work in the source view. White space collapse in the 
formatted view, in the formatted view you are pasting "quick" 
immediately after "the".

In the Windows environment, the most recent documents are available 
in the address field drop down list.

Issuing "amaya <filename>" from the command line works in Windows.

Dropping a file icon onto Amaya works in Windows. It is not clear to 
me what Tim Berners-Lee exactly means with a URL icon in an Windows 
environment, but
neither dragging an "Internet shortcut" nor a link from a web page 
unto an Amaya icon or into an open Amaya window work.
