Hi Mike,

Yep, create a .sty file with this in it:

<definetag name="textline">
       <tex> \strut </tex>
<definetag name="/textline">
       <tex> \strut </tex>

Publish it.

Go into your course, Click on PARM, Click on "Set Course Environment

In the 'Default XML Style File' field enter the above published style

Note, you can redefine the effects of any tag this way, you also can
easily shoot yourself severally in the foot with this, so you should
test it out in a spare course before unleashing on your students.
