For example, I am currently writing a chapter on how to customize the
application menu(s) through automation. If the user has IE4, a VBScript
allows them to customize the application menu right through controls in
the HTML document.

I also have numerous code examples with a RUN button. Pressing the RUN
button in the HTML document drives the application using the example
