OH BOY! Now we're talking!
This fits in with a startling discovery I made the other day.
If we have such a view, of text reading downward in d.2,
and put some table or ZZ-based raster graphic in the middle,
we can rotate the *other* dimensions on the whole rank,
and animate the graphics without changing the text.
Another nonobvious and very interesting property we
should enjoy working with.
Such a text view should be one of the views deliverable in
a browser from a remote server. This fits my earlier proposal
that to send
should deliver such a viewable page in HTML, as generated
probably posward in d.1 and d.2 from that cell, whereas
should deliver that same set of cells themselves.
(Xu is going to be set up for some other functions as well,
in other reaches of the Xanaverse.)
