Subject Re: 2.0.1 TextArea - removed text event
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2012 16:21:40 GMT
on second thoughts, I'm not sure I follow the design here.
Greg, how is TextAreaContentListener meant to be used?
I would have thought that it would expose events for changes to the 
content of a paragraph as well as changes in the Sequence<Paragraph> 
Or am I missing something?
