I was looking at the Wolfram web site for new features of Mathematica version 7, and noticed something that I have not seen before. For example on the page talking about the new "SpokenString" function (see http://www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica/newin7/content/SpeechOutput/ and click on the "Speak any math formula" link, it brings up a browser window with an example of the "SpokenString" function and shows the Mathematica code as an image (like all other Mathematica code that I can think of in a web page), but when you click on the command image, up pops a dialog box with the actual Mathematica code needed to execute the command. Is this something brand new? Would it be possible to have the same thing for a plot image to bring up the code that generated the plot, or any Mathematica expression that is an image on a web page bring up the ACTUAL Mathematica code that it represents? This is so simple and so intuitive, and so wonderful. How long has something like this been around? Is this really brand new for the version 7 info on the Wolfram web site? Are there other web sites that do something similar?? Comments??? -Bob
