   Bob and Michael were sending the messages to both seul-pub and seul-edu (our 
educational mailing list).  Your responses only went to seul-pub, so I'm 
forwarding them to seul-edu so the people on that list only won't miss the 
discussion.  If you're interested, we'd welcome your contributions to seul-edu.  
You can join by going to <http://www.seul.org/edu/> and filling out the small 
form at the bottom of the page.

   I'd recommend against doing this in Director, as that would limit the group 
able to make use of it.  It could possibly be done in PHP3 or in Java 
(definitely in Java), but if possible I'd like to see it as a program in Tcl/Tk 
or one of the other Linux (and other OSs) scripting languages.  That way it 
could run on the individual student's computer rather than on the server, and a 
server wouldn't even be needed.  This might be something Ghislain Picard would 
be interested in adding to Xem, his chemistry program.  Odile, do you know if 
Ghislain is following the seul-edu discussions?  If not, could you let him 
know about this idea?
