*	Added recognition of mouse wheel control sequences and attached 
	according behaviour - untested as I don't have a mouse wheel.

	control-Return (control-Enter) to insert Unicode paragraph 
	separators and line separators respectively if Unicode 
	line-end handling is enabled.
*	Improved coded and mnemonic character entry on prompt line.
