I suspect that the main reason Michael Best got only a few responses to
his request for a wish-list of hypertext features is that most of us
know next to nothing about what hypertext is.  That certainly includes
me.  I know only what I saw demonstrated at last year's SAA meeting in
Atlanta.  I seem to remember some discussion on SHAKSPER about a session
devoted to hypertext at this year's SAA meeting in Albuquerque.  Has such
a session materialized, at least in the form of a definite plan?  If so,
I'd be grateful to hear about it, and I suspect other network users would
be interested too.

My own readings of the plays are greatly enhanced by a concordance at my
desk.  I don't know if that would be practical on hypertext, but I find it
nearly indispenable for a serious reading.
 
Also, I try to find a book on the play in performance, to give me
some guide as to the various business that wouldn't be apparent in just
the text.  Stage direction or how a particular production handled a scene
or character helps my understanding and enjoyment of the play.
 
I believe that Voyager works only on Macs, will this CD-Rom be
available for DOS?
 
        Good luck,  Martin Zacks
