Having just had a little play with the setup I recommended earlier, I
see the same behavior. Although I get the Visible info displayed from
both CDS and mRNA subsequences.

As for Brief 'Identifications' I actually do have this column working
although I cannot say if it works for the sequence it does seem to work
for my subsequences. These are derived from the value of the 
Visible -> Brief_identification tag, and are displayed independently of
the other text features.

While this is probably not of much help, now that I looked at it afresh,
I would still like to be able to get the other Visible data to display.

Any ideas anyone?
