Is there a built in function to generate a GUID within EWB?
Searching through the newsgroups I found an external js one and a
comment from Tim saying that he would look at implementing one.

It has to be code regardless. Making a good GUID can be hard. If you can get assistance from the server, that's a good option IMO. You could get a GUID at the start of a session, and then append an index to it or something.
Me, I maintain a cache of 100 GUIDs in localstorage, obtained from the server. If the cache gets low (or is empty), it requests more from the server when it is idle.

No, not yet. It almost made it into the last round, but I ran out of time. The next round has:
- Current_Week function
- Label (text) selection
- Compiler version and IFDEF expressions
- TObjectList.Save method
- TLink Target property
(no guarantees on these, just what's up on the list).
