After reading some of the IRC backlog, I noticed some very good questions come 
up about states.

When one of the toggle buttons is selected (font style or text position), what 
does it look like?  Is it depressed?

When the save option is not available does it become disabled and the icon has 
a different look?  This is important feedback from the system to tell the 
user "yes, we have the latest version of your file, don't worry about closing 
the application".  Otherwise you have users making changes, saving, having 
their attention diverted, coming back to the application and wondering "did I 
save this?  i thought i did.  what are the new changes?  did I hit some keys 
by acciden?".  

I also noticed the issue of Save As come up, I wonder what other discussions 
have been made about this or similar options?  The solution I read about was 
to modify the save option on key press?
