How to customise the hypertext window
The hypertext window (Note: HyperText) has the following widget
structure. The names in parentheses following the widget names are the
widget class names.
Apart from *hyper* all of the widgets are standard Athena widgets and
so won't be described here.
The size of the window reflects the size of the main area of text in
units of characters. The default size is 24 x 80. Changing the size of
the window should preferrably be done by setting hyperwin's `rows' and
`columns' resources in order to fit in with the way window manager
resizing has been organized to report the size in units of characters.
The keywords `-rows' and `-columns' have been defined to be equivalent
to the resources `*hyperwin.rows' and `*hyperwin.columns'.
In reality it does not make sense to alter the width as the text will
not be wider than 80, and if it is made too small text will be lost at
the right hand margin as the Hyper widget does not perform wrapping.

The following Hyper widget resources are available for customisation:-
is the font to be used for normal text. The default is `7x13'.
is the font to be used for highlighted text. The default is
is the colour to be used for normal text. The default is `black'.
is the colour to be used for highlighted text. The default is
is the colour to be used for selected text, i.e. when mouse button
1 is pressed over highlighted text. The default is `blue'.
Although the Hyper widget is capable of displaying any font the text is
prepared on the assumption that a fixed width (character cell or
monospaced) font will be used. Specifying a proportional font will
probably result in ragged layouts in various places.
