w4w is a Java 1.1 applet. If your display this HTML page (which is called startw4w.html) with a web browser supporting Java 1.1 applets and the file w4w.jar is in the same directory as this HTML page (and publicly readable) then you should see the applet w4w above (otherwise an error message is displayed).
What is w4w good for? Its main purpose is to assist in the production of word-by-word translations. Here are some examples that were generated with the help of w4w: plain text (copied from the merged text area of the applet), HTML page (using the HTML format option), PDF file (using the page numbering and HTML format option; converted to PDF with a web browser).
More information about using w4w is available through the "show Help" button within the applet itself.
If you want to install this applet on a different computer, just copy the files startw4w.html and w4w.jar to that computer (into the same directory; don't rename the files; if necessary set permissions to make them publicly available; you might also want to copy the examples mentioned above to avoid broken links). The applet is started by displaying the file startw4w.html with a web browser (which works even without connection to the internet).
The Java applet w4w is protected by copyright. However, you are allowed to copy, distribute, and use it for non-commercial purposes. You are also allowed to use w4w for the production of materials that are used commercially; however, you may not copy or distribute w4w commerically nor integrate it in any commercial products.
