Ah, OK. I ran it and it put up a blue screen without any dialogues, but 
I hit return a number of times and the dialogue boxes briefly appeared 
and it completed.  Then typwiz ran fine.

OK I'm beginning to see where the problems are now that I have completed 
the first stage of the compiler.

I'll take a look at the format that typwiz produces for those extensions.

The way its written is almost completely insensitive to new lines and 
spaces. In fact I had the opposite problem, in an XPM definition a space 
at the beginning is significant.
