Created Pise which inspired this project.
Creators of Inquiry, based on Pise. The use of a dynamic menu was inspired by Inquiry.


This project started as a clone of Pise, but has grown beyond those beginnings. This project does not contain any Pise source code, and only borrows the Pise DTD in order to validate and use Pise XML program description files. No BioTeam code was used in this project. Logo
