So, I assume that what you are saying is that it is possible for me to 
actually create another stack from inside my application, and populate 
it with the data (text, images, etc.) that I need. That sounds like a 
really interesting solution! A couple of questions:

1) Is the stack that functions as the 'document' (the one I saved all 
the relevant information TO) cross-platform? ie, would a Mac and a 
Windows user be able to exchange stacks?

2) Is it possible for me to setup a custom Mac file type for that 
stack? (and a custom icon?)

You help is immensely appreciated!

Many thanks, and

Kind Regards,
