And more sensible/logical/useful. Especially if you're using the word literal ... uh ... literally. Or as you'd have to speak it to type that last sentence, "Especially if you're using the word literalliteral ... uh ... literalliterally." ;-)

If I were using this, I'd have to say stuff like: "First choose literalFile then literalOptions and in the literalOptions pane, click ..."

When the "literal"s exceed 30% of the text, I'm gone.
I agree. I would think there should be a simple command to toggle verbal commands on and off. Like in vBulletin (on which this forum -- and many others -- runs), where if I'm typing a description of how to enter something in a post and I want it to appear as I type it, rather than execute the code it represents, I can open the post with the tag and then type vBulletin tags merrily along until I'm finished, at which point I type and, from there on, entering vBulletin tags will again generate vBulletin commands.
