I'm not very familiar with courseware. I knew of the existence of a
macintosh hypercard course for the language esperanto, and had the
feeling that it should be possible to 'port' it to the Web -

and to create a wider audience for the course.

I'm doing the 'port', gradually, with a normal text editor as 'main' tool.
I would be interested in tools that make it easier to translate an
existing hypercard course to HTML.
Note that I'm not _designing_ the course - i'm just porting it:
reformatting it in HTML, and creating 'solutions' for the ISMAP- and
FORM-like hypercard features, to build interactive exercises.
