Dear Dave: I have a couple of ideas for linktool you might be interested in thinking about. Here is one kind of thing it would be nice to do: enter a knot with a mouse, get a nice picture of it (so far so good) but now I want to put that nice picture back in the edit widow and make some more modifications. As it is, none of the outputs of the nicely displayed links can be put directly back into an edit window. One would use the fineness of spline points to decide how many straight edges to use. It would be nice to be able to enter several of these in the same edit window, as different strands then one could connect them up and make various tanglings. One might like to iterate this process several times. Another thing that I would find useful is a display that shows a given knot as a nicely drawn knotted arc which might begin and end somewhere on say some fixed line (an axzis, say). Given a knot there are several such pictures one gets depending on how one "breaks the circle to get the arc". This would be useful to me in constructing nice versions of knotted spheres. How about something that would make a nice picture of a given braid? I had some other thoughts along these lines, but I'm running low on time at the moment.
