     Greetings,
     
     I have been told that this address can answer the following question.
     
     1A) GENERAL: Will application files from Microsoft Office or Digitial 
     Interleaf/Cadre Teamwork be compatible with Internet HTML/VTML?  If not 
     compatible, then what type of HTML/VTML complexity planned product 
     improvements timeline exists?  
     
     1B) SPECIFIC: The limitations in Internet server size, Rockwell (makes 80% 
     of market) modem speed, and line access costs constrains current HTML/VTML 
     standards.  If this speculation is reasonable, then only a capitalizatiion 
     writeoff by the phone companies and modem/server technology improvements 
     can create an economical implementation for more complex HTML/VTML 
     specification upgrades which incorporate more "hardrive applications" 
     features (such as Interleaf and/or Microsoft Office and/or DOOM graphics).
