I find the newest version of DrScheme (from Rice U) goes further
into some of these topics. There's a GUI object toolkit (widgets),
some XML support, plus a tutorial on how to write CGI programs.
Given what appears to be a highly OO flavor to the widgets (similar
to Python's), I'm going to have to look again at how to implement
objects as instances of classes (organized in a hierarchy) in this
flavor of Scheme.
