I still have the installation CD for Panorama, and the one for Synex
that was in the back of my book on SGML tools :-) Distributing them is
probably a breach of something or other, however.

Both the ability to implement bidirectional links (and publish them),
and the superiority of its stylesheet-editing interface, made it vastly
better than anything else at the time (or now, for that matter).

It's on my list of materials for a forthcoming paper for Balisage (not
this year) on "Markup software we have lost". Suggestions for others
