other units or programs. During editing, a right click on
highlighted text brings up a hyperlink editor. The link can
be a jump, do or library

connection to an Internet URL through a launched browser.
During runtime, hypertext can be shown colored and
underlined, and with the pointer changing to a pointing hand.
Missing links can be programmed to be ignored, pop-up an
error information window, or produce an execution error.

sizing, etc. are provided. Multiple windows can be opened

each window to handle Windows messages (such as
"resize"), timed events, flow events, mouse events

windows can provide extra "pages" for purposes such
as display transitions.
For upward compatibility and special purposes, the
previous hierarchical TenCORE windows remain supported.
