VS2003 IDE: Ln Col Ch

In the 2003 Visual Studio IDE, the bottom has "Ln Col Ch". I assume those are Line, Column, and Character. Have seen those for ages and just glossed over them (they just work, ya know). My question -- are the column and character ever different? They are always the same for me, so I wonder why there are both. Just a weird question.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No, they have always been the same for me and I have heard why yet.

Well  they are not always the same.

Try this, go to th end of a collapsed region.

somehow the ch is always 12, and the col will give the correct column.

Interesting. I wonder if that is a defect or a feature.

Hi GivenRandy, I think 'interesting' is a bit of an overstatement in this case ;-)

Thanks, Ronald, I hadn't found a case where those numbers changed, and I couldn't find any reference to what they really are supposed to mean.  It wasn't important enough to find out.

No need to be snide. This is the kind of thing that is not easily found and, hence, asking "experts". :)

Weird. Maybe it has to do with future features, Unicode, graphics, or something else. If I happen to stumble across the details in the future, I'll try to post them here.
