Excellent!  Love the image examples.

I saw on your Web page that you want to do this to deploy programs on
the Web.  But Scheme already has a great Web server interface.  So why
would you want to mess w/ Java?  See the tutorial that Danny and Jay
have developed, if you need help getting started.  (Jay, can you
please post a pointer?)

> 2) What do you mean by exactly "pretty big scheme" ? Is it R6RS ?

A better name would be "kitchen sink Scheme": it's Standard Scheme
plus all the usual PLT additions (structures, LOCAL, better names for
some primitives, etc, etc).  The Help Desk (under the Help menu) will
give you more info.
