	Ooh - interesting; presumably we have some per-document grid color
setting that this reflects (?) so you can make the grid pink, save the
document, and re-load it elsewhere. Perhaps this highlights some of the
problems of separating document settings from application settings, and
in particular application defaults for document settings ;-)

	Otherwise I'm well up for adding a compatibility option for this ;-)
though IMHO the default should be to behave in a familiar way to our
deluge of new exiles from the Microsoft world ;-)

	Thanks !
