Hi Felicia, et. al

Actually, tooling around a bit more this morning, I think I figured out a
way to kludge together the ability to edit the XML for a sequence.
Basically, I take the sequence rename it to "foo.html" then I can edit the
source code inside loncapa, save it back to "foo.html" and then copy it back
to "foo.sequence". Seems kinda awkward, but a least it lets me fix the
problems that I think the advanced GUI editor is introducing into my
sequence (can't believe I'm the only one having that problem). 

It looks like we are still on version 2.02 here at VCU; I'm going to inquire
about updating our version to see if that corrects any issues I'm seeing,
and if not I'll post a bug report.
