---------------------------------

File 992a.diffs shows the ancillary changes that needed to be merged (somewhat piecemeal) from "trunk" to "branches/2.0.x" so that these latest TextPane changes would compile.

> Because of the way the "getSelectedText()" method is implemented it will construct a separate document containing an enclosing paragraph and then put the selected range of stuff into that document.  But for simple text, that enclosing paragraph causes the PlainTextSerializer to output a line break.  Thus the selected text result will always end in a newline even if the selection does not encompass the end of the line.  This differs from the result of "getText(...)" using the selection bounds.
