        This first section looks good as is;
           but does have a few grammatical errors which I'll point out in [

        In spite of what some computer users say or do, I'll continue to
stick with proper grammar -

I agree. But I know too little about English grammar and typographic rules

       [that's what an editor does]

           after a period in a sentence there should be 2 spaces even though
these machines default to only 1;

In HTML double or more spaces becomes a single space. See Mark's reply to
this list. It is a lot of work to add the code '&nbsp;' behind every period.

       [I know; don't worry about this; the reason for the double space was
to make it easier to read -
         as commas & periods could be confused so the extra space allowed
the eye to catch the end of the sentence easier;
             but these machines, I think, started deleting that extra space
in their beginning days of the 0s & 1s]

           and double quotes are for conversations - single quotes - or in
your Norwegian << >> - would be used for empasis,

I'll try to remember this.

       [seems as if this is same as your native language]

        And BTW - looks as if you've spent a lot of time creating a very
good site & program,

Thank you.
Brian Barker (many thanks to him) has proofread the whole site and sent it
to me private.

   [I thought about doing so, then thought the list members might have
further thoughts  ;-) ]

I will use his suggestions together with yours.
It will take some time to code it as I prefer hand coding.

   [sounds good]

Perhaps because the settings of of my e-mail reader I did not see the film.
Was displayed as '[Image: display film]'.


How to open LibreLogo in LibreOffice

The great majority who use LibreOffice do not know there is a Logo variant
in Writer.  There are no direct links to LibreLogo on the menus.  The only
way, I think, is to open a new text document.  In the main menu at the top
of the page, press the View → Toolbars → Logo.  This will open the
LibreLogo toolbar.  This toolbar contains some buttons to control the
turtle and a command line where you can enter commands. Press on one of the
buttons to bring up the turtle.

    ['great' is superfluous ...

       'I think' is superfluous; you're the writer therefore this can
be left out or changed to possibly or probably ...

          'turtle' ...

             command line to enter commands.]

The Buttons on the Menubar

Every time you press on buttons Backward and Forward the turtle will be
moved 10 pixels backwards or forwards.  Buttons Right and Left will turn
the turtle 15º clockwise or counter-clockwise.   Button Home moves the
turtle to the starting point in the middle of the page with the head
upwards.  Clear screen will remove all drawings from the page.  Start and
Stop are used to start and stop the execution of the program.  The command
line is used for entering commands, one line at a time.  The button to the
right of the command line is used to configure all commands with large
letters and to translate the program into other languages.  This is not
used in this overview.

    [Each time you press on any button - ...

       will move ...

          backward or forward ...]

If the purpose is to learn programming, only the command line and buttons
to clear the screen and put the turtle back is helpful. The others buttons
is used to create shapes without programming.

    [are helpful.  The other buttons are]
