You could always forgo the mouse and just use keystrokes... advanced
marking is possible using the cursor, CTRL and SHIFT keys.

The problem is, this function is not inherent in the Win3x shell, so it
must be added to the word processor, in the form of bloat. More
advanced shells, such as Win9x's and OS/2's, handle that functionality
themselves, allowing it to be used with programs that don't support it
internally.
