About the Figures. HyperCard was not designed for presentation on the Web, although facilities for doing this easily are promised in the next major release. While there are programs that convert HyperCard stacks for web use, many of the stacks shown here utilize commercial or custom-made CDs and external commands for the Macintosh, making them impractical for web presentation without a great deal of rewriting. We have compromised by showing individual cards as GIF images and portions of programs as QuickTime movies. This does not allow user interaction, but does demonstrate the programs. The GIF images were created from screen shots made via a keyboard shortcut on the Macintosh. These were then cropped and converted with GIFConverter 2.3.7. QuickTime movies were made using CameraMan 3.0 (Motion Works), which records movies directly from the computer screen. CameraMan does not record the cursor on PowerMacs, so wherever possible, we modified buttons and fields so that they would be highlighted when the user clicks on them with the mouse. Many of our stacks use a large-screen format which does not fit well into web browsers. Movies of these were reduced to half size resulting in some loss of definition, especially in text. Where higher definition was necessary, we recorded partial windows, so the whole card does not show. We used SoundEdit 16, version 2 to reduce all sound tracks to 22.05 kHz, 8 bit, mono to keep size to a minimum. Figures are shown in separate windows, which should be closed after viewing each figure. We have provided a button, implemented in JavaScript, at the bottom of each figure for this purpose, or you may use the normal close box or pull-down menu, depending on which browser you are using.
