This work derives from a simple question we asked long ago: "How can computer documents– shown interactively on screens, stored on disk, transmitted electronically– improve on paper?"  Our answer was: "Keep every quotation connected to its original source."  We are still fighting for this idea, and the great powers it will give authors and readers.  (Others would later ask a very different question: "How can computers SIMULATE paper?"– the wrong question, we believe, whose mistaken pursuit has brought us to the present grim document world.)
One part of this project is available already: The Xanadu® Transquoter™, which does indeed keep quotes connected to their origins.
