It looks like you have already found this information, but the only
source of Rexx/EPM inforamtion I know of is the "QuickRef" from
the EPM help menu. (Like the last section in the file.) Scanning
it quickly, it looks like you are right, you can control the MARK
color and nothing more.
HOWEVER, I am told that EPM has been upgraded and this upgrade (to
version 6.x if I recall correctly) has some Rexx enhansements. This
might be one of them. So if you are using the EPM out of the OS/2
box, you might check into the upgrade. Some third party offers this,
but it is the same third party that originally wrote EPM for IBM AND
the last I knew the upgrade was free!!!
