Preview Status Box is black

shouldn't it say something?  Otherwise, why have it?

Yeah, its not supposed to be black.  Are you running on Win98 and did this happen after your previous switch to HTML view bug?  (See my win98 crash post earlier in the discussion board).

no, running Win2K with all the latest SPs

yes, it did happen after the prev bug but it also occurred again after restarting the app.

Jeff, you wouldn't happen to have your Display Properties set to use a black background, by any chance?
