This is a very clean and efficient bit of programming. It works very well and the macro features remind me of the best of TexEdit (which is really good!).
It handles and saves documents with 2-byte characters (Korean, Japanese, etc.) without a problem (unlike mellel!) and the price is good.

I look forward to seeing what else happens with this software.

"a good word processor"

lightway is a simple but powerful word processor. I usually write with my old powerbook duo, with my imac and sometimes with a windows nt system. Is really good to have the SAME word processor working with 7.5, os X and win nt, sharing files without strange conversion or loosing data, for 25$.
There are some bug here and there, the typing feedback on my duo is a little slow in long paragraph, and the win beta has some problem with italian accents, but actually I have a real good vibe working with it, and there is a good feedback from yumiko if you email him the problems you meet.

And this is a good text editor too.
