Brent Simmons pointed to (Green characters on black == bliss) one of my recent stories on emacs, talking about having a special place in our hearts for terminal-based text editors, thanks to our history with Apple II back in the day — it spawned a bit of an investigation as to which word processor it was that neither of us could remember. Turns out it was Word Handler II, which I tracked down thanks to recognizing its cover in an image attached to an eBay auction of old Apple stuff. I’m mirroring the image here.
In the bottom left, the leatheresque cover. :)
Now if only I could track down a screenshot….
