 9        Word</strong></span> (shortcut: <code class="keycap">C+b</code>) locates possible
10        completions for the word at the caret, first by looking in the current
11        edit mode's syntax highlighting keyword list, and then in the current
12        buffer for words that begin with the word at the caret. This serves as a
13        very basic code completion feature.</p><p>If there is only one completion, it will be inserted into the
14        buffer immediately.</p><p>If multiple completions were found, the longest common prefix is
15        inserted into the buffer, and a popup is shown below the caret position
16        listing the completions.</p><p>To insert a completion from the list, either select it using the
17        <code class="keycap">UP</code> and <code class="keycap">DOWN</code> keys and press
18        <code class="keycap">ENTER</code>, press a digit to insert one of the first ten
19        completions (1 is the first completion; 9 is the 9th; 0 is the 10th), or
20        click the desired completion with the mouse. To close the popup without
21        inserting a completion, press <code class="keycap">ESCAPE</code>.</p><p>Typing while the popup is visible will automatically update the
22        popup and narrow the set of completions as necessary.</p><p><span class="guimenu"><strong>Edit</strong></span>&gt;<span class="guimenuitem"><strong>Word Count</strong></span>

25            <code class="keycap">C+RIGHT</code>, <code class="keycap">C+BACKSPACE</code> and
26            <code class="keycap">C+DELETE</code> commands is to stop both at the beginning
27            and the end of each word. Normally, a word is a sequence of
28            alphanumerics, but you can add other characters as part of 
29            what jEdit considers to be a 'word', set on a global or mode basis
30            from <span class="guimenuitem"><strong>Global Options -  Editing - Extra Word
31            Characters</strong></span>. 
32            In addition, this behavior can be changed by remapping
33            these keystrokes to alternative actions whose names end with
34            <span class="guimenuitem"><strong>(Eat Whitespace)</strong></span> in the
