Or, failing that, is there another way to build a courseware app that 
uses a script to generate and show pages with hyperlink navigation? I 
want to build a cross-platform app on the lines of WikiWriter and 
WikiRev (http://hytext.com) which I developed. I am reluctant to make 
the (time and mental energy) commitment to plunging into Squeak without 
some assurance that I'm swimming in the right waters.
