zscreen is now sharex, has been for a couple of years, and does indeed capture aero effects.

comment Word 2010 not printing body text on pages with images
Good idea; I haven't looked into that. Both printers are PCL drivers, though.

comment Can Word change the format of embedded images in a docx file?
Image compression document-wide? What do you mean by that? Isn't everyrthing automatically compressed when it goes into the .zip docx container? Though, I'm actually finished with the reencoding (search & replace .emf with .jpeg on the resource XML, suck out the emfs, shove them through imagemagik, push them back in.) so yeah, it's easier than I thought. Still, I'd like it if Word could handle this automatically.

comment How do I distribute a basic database to Macintosh OS X & OS 8/9 PCs?
After looking over Tiddlywiki, something like it could be useful. Is there any way to convert structured data into its tiddlers, or is it something that would need to be maintained by hand?

comment How do I distribute a basic database to Macintosh OS X & OS 8/9 PCs?
I don't want to distribute all the numbers to end users' contacts, I want to distribute the ability to search for a particular (i.e. local) number.

Yeah, that's the conclusion I was reaching myself, which is why I'm hoping I just don't know about a simpler solution. Re: OS8/9, would something like Hypercard work for this? I vaguely remember fooling around with it in my younger days. Does it contain database and search capabilities of any kind?
