I'd like to congratulate and thank to all those who contribute to
Geany (and did so in the past).  I currently use it as an HTML editor
which, I know, is like having Michelangelo paint your toilet door in
white.  :)

When I first began using it I thought - wow!  this is great!  I have
an IDE which looks good, doesn't have 10,000 options/windows etc. It's
so simple!  I know now that Geany only *appears* simple but is, in
fact, quite complex underneath.

While I'm amazed at Geany itself, I'm further amazed but its
documentation.  I've seen only a few FLOSS projects which have
documentation of this standard.  I understand how much time and effort
goes into documentation so I can appreciate Geany's documentation.

The only feature which I "miss" is the ability to select colour
schemes.  To solve this I'm using the Perl script that someone write
named "set_geany_colors" (or something like that :) ).

Since I've now been using Geany for some months, my thanks comes late
but I hope you'll forgive me.

In brief then,
   Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou.

   Russell Dickenson
