That's really interesting.  I looked briefly at the page.  How does your
python extension work with xywrite?  Does it manipulate xywrite
documents or does it tie in at runtime with Xywrite somehow?  If so, how
does it do this?  Crossing the divide into a 16-bit app is pretty

I wonder how well your system could be made to work with dosbox.  Dosbox
runs xywrite on any platform (even non x86 like a tablet).  I'm not sure
how you'd interface dosbox with python on the host though.
