mark-normal-region

Begin marking a normal region.  Brief: Alt-A

This command begins marking and highlighting a region of text, defining it as a normal (non-inclusive) region. A normal region includes all the characters between point and mark. When you run this command, it sets the mark equal to the value of point, so initially the highlighted region is empty.

If Epsilon is already highlighting a region of another type, this command redefines the region as a normal region. If mark-unhighlights is nonzero and Epsilon is already highlighting a normal region, this command turns off the highlighting. See set-mark for a command that always begins defining a new region, even when a region has already been highlighted.
