HyperCard migration

I have used HyperCard for years, and have a rather large stack I'm 
trying to bring into Revolution.  I had lots of code in the background 
layer and it seems it didn't make it into the conversion at all.  I 
fixed it by simply copying it over to the card script, since the script 
length seems to be unlimited as compared to 32000 characters for 
HyperCard.  I also have a lot of XCMDs and XFCNs I need to bring over 
too.  I used ResEdit to creat a resource fork in the Rev stack and moved 
them into the stack, but they don't work.  Checked the docs and looks 
like I should be OK, but no banana.

If there is anyone there that could help, I would appreciate it.

1. Where is the background script?

2. Why don't the XCMDs and XFCNs work?
