You didn't answer my question about whether both the watch keys and key
command of trigger action are treated the same way.  Earlier I posted
that the coded suggests they are treated the same way, but I've since
seen other code that suggests otherwise.  Do you know the answer?

I have a bunch of questions about your paragraph above.  First, when you
say Trigger does all the inner (higher) traits first.  By higher, do you
mean visibly higher on the list?  Because if so, then that seems to
contradict Tim's Hello World example.  Has Tim got it wrong or did you
misspeak, or do I misunderstand?

But more significantly to me, what you write seems to contradict what
I'm experiencing as documented in the first post in this thread, namely
I experience that the order between Delete and TriggerAction doesn't
seem to matter--Delete always happens before TriggerAction.
