Robert, did you use a machine that had two displays or only one? I learned it (structured FM8, IIRC) on my own, but there were two displays, so that at all times I could see both a full view of the WYSIWYG and also the underlying structure. I felt it would have been extremely difficult without that kind of view. I feel that being able to see the structure, where it shows you, "Oops, you can't do that here," or "Something missing here," is crucial.
