Notepad Server works with a modified version of
Ray Rischpater's nHTTPd to allow Newton users to server up Notes from your Newton to WWW
clients. Notepad Server adds HTML formatting to the selected Note. nHTTPd then kicks in to
serve up your page to a selected IP (your desktop machine.) This version includes
significant enhancements, including international character support, Server Side Includes
(SSI), raw HTML serving capability and more! The author plans future upgrades to this
product, including Future versions of Notepad server may include features such as the
ability to also serve lists and outlines from stationery types in the Notepad, enhanced
customization options for HTML display, automatic text style recognition and conversion to
HTML, and the ability to post notes to the host Newton from a form. Reading the
documentation included is very important! This download includes a special version
of the required nHTTPd and also requires NOS 2.x and NIE 1.1 or greater. Freeware Credit:

This package helps teachers maintain useful
records while moving about the classroom, in the field, or wherever the teacher might

planning, and assess student performance. Teachers will find the Parent Report generator
one of the most significant functions of Clarity. In just one step, a teacher may make
available a student's entire history including attendance, grades and individual
observation. Credit: New World Software. (Note: If you're downloading the pkg file,
you may also want to download some documentation,
available with the zipped version too.)

The Basic HTML Reference Newton book is a guide
for those who are new to HTML but who'd like to try out the Newton as a WWW Notes server
with Matthew Vaughn's Notepad Server. This is a great reference point if you'd like
to familiarize yourself with basic HTML tags, too! With this Newton book, users may
cut and paste many common HTML tags into their notes. This book covers tags
from starting the page to image linking. Credit: Michael Jones.
HyperNewt is a revolutionary way to create and
organize data on a Newton. With intuitive interface, flexible data management controls,
and powerful linking capabilities, HyperNewt is a new window to information. Implementing a hierarchical filing system,
HyperNewt lets users create any number of folders and subfolders to store notes,
checklists, outlines, and other notepad stationery, in a cleaner and more efficient
manner. Leveraging on the Newton¹s soup data architecture, HyperNewt can act as a
freeform database for handling all types of information on your Newton. If you store
HyperNewt internally or have installed Stand Alone's SuperNotepad, do not choose to
have HyperNewt replace the Notepad app at startup. If you have chosen to replace the
Notepad app with HyperNewt, *DO NOT* make HyperNewt your backdrop application. Opening
HyperNewt will cause an alert to appear asking you to use the Notepad app instead. This
version includes numerous bug fixes and now works better viewing HyperLinks.

beta version of Dash Board fixes a landscape mode bug and now works with Innovative
Computer Solutions' Gesture Launch 3.1 scripting application. Dash Board gives
Newton users instant (and more importantly constant) access to any application installed
or running on the MP. One of the best features is a HWR shortcut box! For instance, if a
user wants to run Calculator while in another app, he only has to write a "C" in
the small text box on the Extras bar and Calculator pops up. The features in this package
are numerous and full -- from glance access to time, battery and memory status, volume,
contrast and backlight controls to a Win95/Start-like popup program menu and user
programmable scripts. The latest version includes a few fixes and screen redraw
enhancements. Credit: FiveSpeed Software.
The latest in Prism Research's math and physics
applications, MathLib is an advanced math and stats routine library exportable to any

conversions. Credit: Prism Research.
