Thanks very much for a considered reply, Richard, most helpful.

I've taken a closer look at the two interactives and they really are 
quite simple.  There's no menus or buttons, not much scripting.  They 
appear to be just a series of images linked together with hot spot 
clickable areas.  If I was to start them now, I reckon a series of 
web pages would do the same thing.  I hope this means my porting 
exercise is a little easier.
