Palimpsest represents a divergence from existing implementations of Hypertext (HTML, Acrobat, StorySpace etc. etc.) as it is not primarily designed as a publication tool. Rather, Palimpsest is an environment for reading, studying and researching electronic texts. Sounds like a niche market? Well, how many Mac-using students are there in the world? And you only have to look at Project Gutenberg and numerous other eText initiatives to get some idea of how much, and what variety of material is becoming freely available via the web.
Responses we received during beta testing show significant interest in Palimpsest in fields as diverse as history, law, medicine and languages. It is our hope that Palimpsest will become yet another reason people choose Macintosh.
