Dead medium: Non-HTML hypertext authoring systems, circa 1993

Reviews of "commercially available software" in three environments (Apple, Windows, DOS) for authoring hypertext, "with the aim of providing recommendations to potential authors." Plus evalutions of a number of important research systems on "workstation" environments.

DOS: Dart, Folio VIEWS, HyperPad, HyperShell, HyperTies, HyperWriter!, Knowledge Pro, LinkWay, Orpheus

Windows: FrameMaker, Guide, Knowledge Pro, PLUS, SmarText, ToolBook, Windows Help Compiler

Apple: FrameMaker, Guide, HyperCard, PLUS, Storyspace

(HyperCard's the only one I know personally. I'm pretty sure it's dead, but what do I know...)
