The Apple project (XCF?) had an integrated viewer/editor/generator(from an
HTML nested list or by following links). The interface allowed the user to

The Java applet gives reasonable performance on my P150 under Linux 2.2 
and Netscape 4.08. The Apple version was a bit less than twice as fast
as a Windows binary on the same system.
