For those interested in this question in a broader context, Apple's 
attractive and informative publication "Human Interface Guidelines: The 
Apple Desktop Interface" (Addison Wesley Publishing Company, Copyright 
1987, Third Printing, July 1988), discusses "selecting" and "selection" 
on pages 29 and 106-117.  Its Index has 25 entries under those two 
headings.  The entry for "selections, extending or shrinking" points to 
page 109 and the entry for "selections, scrolling after" points to page 

Apple did things right and documented them meticulously in those days -- 
as did Mathematica.
