Yes, that is a good point. I do use 'asq' - especially with the
Windows version of Axiom. It is a simple C program that could
probably be quite easily adapted produce HTML output and to be
called as a cgi program from a web server such Apache on

But I think there is at least one important database query that
HyperDoc does but which I do not know how to do with the current
'asq' program. On HyperDoc I can ask for all the "children" of
a domain but with 'asq' I only get to see the "ancestors", i.e.
I can only navigate in one direction in the lattice. Or am I
missing something obvious?
