> 1. Where is the background script?
HyperCard backgrounds are replaced by RR groups. There can be many groups on
one card; that is a bit confusing at first, but it is much better that way.
> 2. Why don't the XCMDs and XFCNs work?
Some do, some don't. Every Xthing that brings up a dialog doesn't work. But
it is often easy to make your own dialogs (substacks) to replace that
