Re: problem of marker as position

   But, as I'm not native English, if your understanding is
   natural, I don't insist on adding the extra explanation in

I am a native English speaker and, to my embarrassment, have been
confused.  Extra explanation is useful, since the notion of marker
encompasses two different concepts:

  1. a position within a buffer that relocates automatically when
     text is inserted or deleted, 

  2. a specification of which buffer the position is within.

My problem is that sometimes, I focus on concept # 2 when the person
writing the code focuses on concept # 1 --- I should, of course, focus
on both concepts, but forget.  A better explanation would help me

The two concepts cannot be separated because the position must be
within a particular buffer.
