    Good question - I would be interested in knowing also.
    STk is definitely my favorite Scheme inmplementation.

    Between the FFI and the CLOS implementation it really provides
    almost everything that I look for in a production language. I do
    have a coworker that isn't fond of STk because of its habit of
    reporting an error on line x of your code when the actual problem
    is to found much deeper down in a library.

    I told him to just not write code with errors.

    While I have been known to MzScheme and SCSH once in a while,
    I really use STk for nearly everything. I wrote a nifty FFI for
    gdbm and I use STk with large gdbm databases. I wrote a nice CGI
    lib and html lib that use heavily. Example:

(define foo (make html-doc
              :title "Software Archive"
              :bg-color "#f5deb3"
              :addr ""))

(add-child (center (h2 "Software Archive")) foo)

(define table (make html-table
                :border "0"))

(add-child (tr (list (th "Filename" :bg-color "#ccccff")
                     (th "Description" :bg-color "#ccccff")
                     (th "Supported" :bg-color "#ccccff"))) table)

;;;<More stuff, deleted>

(add-child "<CENTER>" foo)
(add-child table foo)
(add-child "</CENTER>" foo)

(add-child "<BR><BR><HR>" foo)

(output foo)

   So, I have various table objects and so forth that can be children
   of the html-doc object. The table objects can possess children
   also, ad infinitum.


> The mailing list sure is quiet.

   Yes it is. I do not know whether there are few subscribers
   or whether there few people have STk questions.

How absolute the knave is!
We must speak by the card, or equivocation will undo us.
