@BobChip: "Reveal codes"

I remember it well, as well as the 'print preview' which rendered a preview of what the document might look like,.... although back then we saved the print to a Postscript file, and had to ftp it to our VAX, and print it from there, as we didn't have any printers available directly to the LanManager (remember that? ) network.

I used to feel quite at home editing the codes, but then other formatting tools were such offerings as LaTeX, so if you'd cut your teeth on that, WP 5.1 doing most of it for you was a boon.
