FAQ
Can computers really do creative writing?

Just look! If anything, Ghost Writer is probably too creative. ;-)

Why use Web Start? Wouldn't Flash be better?
No. Flash is perfect for interactive cartoons, but would be slow and clumsy for the large correlation matrices manipulated by Ghost Writer. And this Java Ghost Writer could be easily updated to read and analyze files on the user's machine in addition to its 5 basic styles. But Flash can't read user-selected files.
Why use Web Start? Wouldn't JSP be better?
This Web Start implementation takes advantage of client-side horsepower instead of burdening the server. And the user enjoys immediate response to any input. (There isn't even an Enter button!) And this client-side Ghost Writer could be easily updated to read and analyze files on the user's machine in addition to its 5 basic styles. A server-side approach could not.
