Thanks for looking into this.

I did not mean that someone should look into the posted code. I was in a hurry and I simply asked a direct question if anyone has any idea of why 4096 would be a limit for highlighting text in TextMorph. The question had nothing to do with Glamour, but I am sorry if the form of the mail made you waste your time.

In any case, I will look into this in more details.
