I've delved somewhat into the classes in Squeak 2.0 Beta that support
rich text editing and formatting and I find them quite intriguing.
Comparing them to the Swing Set classes in Java for the same general
purpose, they seem quite robust, though they fall short at the document
level (unless I'm missing something in Squeak, which is certainly

I'm trying to compare the two environments in terms of their suitability
for writing a net-based word processor. Are there any example
applications out there that point the way and perhaps do a better job of
explaining the classes that would support such an effort in Squeak?
