    For the "in a selection" option (the first one, where we want to do this for just some cells and not a whole sheet/workbook), the instructions are for hiding a zero; I don't see instructions for displaying hidden zeros...? Given the cryptic code this simple command requires, I don't know why that would be left out of these detailed instructions, what am I missing?
