Amaya is based on the Thot toolkit wich is able to manage general
structured documents. *.S are Structured schema sources (like SGML DTDs).
*.P are Presentation schema sources, gerenic description of how to display
each structure element in the S schema.
*.T are Translation schema sources, gerenic description of how to generate
an external syntax for each structure element in the S schema.
*.STR are compiled versions of Structured schemas, *.PRS are compiled versions
of Presentation schemas and *.TRA are compiled versions of Translation schemas.
These compiled files are generated by specific Thot compilers str, prs and tra.

Today str, prs and tra compilers are not available on Windows platforms,
so you first need an Unix platform to proceed.
We plan to introduce frames in the next Amaya release of mid-September, but
the frame support will be very limited: only the parsing is taken into account,
in the first time.
I think you could help after that new release.

You can read the note "An Introduction to Amaya" at 
and have a look at the section "Developer's corner" in
