Manual tweaking is still required. Changes that need to be made to stop
StrongED complaining are:

 - Change the bitmap font style from 'CtrlTab' to 'Regular' where
   present. Note that this should to be done in both Defaults _and_

 - Bitmap font names need to be changed from 'font' to 'WxH.font' where
   W is the width and H the height of the font in pixels.

Other changes that have been mode to the Mode Choices is the addition of
the Checks section. The options for 'Refresh texts' are not present in
the Choices files provided. This is not a problem though as StrongED
will use the default values for these.

The Colours files also have been changed. The number of syntax colour
groups has been increased to 32. Again, if missing default values will
be used.

There are two CSS modes that I'm aware of. One by Andrew Hodgkinson
( https://pond.org.uk/stronged/ ) and another by Chris Terran for which
I couldn't find a downloadable copy.
