    entities (extendible)
  o support for un-limited number of templates
  o comprehensive context-sensitive, hypertext help with topics
    on a selected tag and edited attribute (version related)
  o on-line hints when importing and correcting legacy HTML documents

    (interprocess communication is used for Netscape and Mosaic)
