This requires the support of CSS counters.

I don't guess a html parser doesn't report an error on these lines
except if they are within a cdata.
Please point us to the page.

> 3.  a way to insert the date and time  i.e. Alt-I, Date and September 18, 2008 is put into the document.

There is a command that insert the date. See the Tools menu.

> 4. The ability to use Shift-down to highlight things.  Right now I can't highlight past an end tag.  Oddly I can highlight all I want using shift-up.  This might be a bug.  This happens in the source window

This problem is now fixed in the CVS version and will be available in
the next snapshot.

> 5. Use the mouse to move things like any other windows app.  Highlight the stuff you want to move (left click hold and highlight), release, left click inside the highlighted area and move the text.

That cannot work with our structured approach.
