Subject: Hypercard to Web

Dear Humanists,

I have recently been having some discussions with faculty who have enquired
about the possibility of porting elderly hypercard applications and stacks
onto WWW pages.

It strikes me that there are probably a lot of people out there who spent
many hours painstakingly compiling hypercard stacks for teaching back in
the good old days when that represented the cutting edge of technology -
where are all these stacks now? Has anyone had success in importing
hypercard stacks into a web based format? Or is it a case of re-doing all
the links in a web authoring program? Is there a plug in that will help?
Any suggestions, comments, or anecdotes welcome,
