Are you using lots of edit fields to display text?  I found FB3 no
better than FBII at this, probably because Apple's Toolbox calls are
still 680x0 emulations.  Somebody please correct me if I am wrong.

Perhaps you can speed things up by not using textedit for simply
displaying text. Use quickdraw commands instead.  Use functions such as
STRINGWITH to  justify text.  I also don't use PRINT if speed is
paramount.  Quickdraw commands DRAWSTRING and DRAWTEXT are faster.

Hope this helps ... Charles P.
