Abstract

This invention is designed for instant messaging clients, such as Lotus Sametime or Yahoo's Instant Messenger; it is a method to update an incorrect line or lines of text in the instant message textbox that has already been sent in an instant message, so that the sender would not have to type additional lines to explain her original intention.
