    A more convenient method of creating mouse hot spots in a display (e.g. menu) file: New "HOT:<attr>" @-code allows you to define a specific combination of attributes (colors) that will be used to exclusively create clickable command keys or words in a file. Every set of charcters in the display file that uses that specific combination of attributes will become an automatic mouse hot spot. The <attr> is specified using a set of attribte mnemonics (e.g. "YH" for high-intensity yellow), the same set used in attr.cfg and other places in sbbs.
    
    This allows more WYSIWYG style menu editing (e.g. use PabloDraw), you just need to be careful with your choice of colors. You cannot send white-space or control characters with this method and the clickable text is the exact text that will be put in the keyboard buffer.
