And you will have no idea about what's in between! The text in the  
bottom pane is totally disconnected from the top pane so you may have  
selected an end point that appears correct but is three sections down  
from where you want to be. When done in a single pane you must scroll  
past everything so you can be more careful.

Good Luck,
