Thanks Nick for your hint. 
But the thing is that it is not very comfortable to follow your
'pasting-strategy' at each session. The do-file editor's default seems
to be bold font. That is, when I start a new file in the editor the font
is set to bold again. 
I run STATA under Windows2000. And I find it still very annoying to read
my do files in bold letters from now on. 
Further suggestions a more then appreciated.
