By having a screenplay called "two spaces" that would show how to change the
status of, say, intersentance distance.  What's interesting is that this
screenplay could be hyperlinked into, i.e. the text in anohter video could
have blue color and underlines.

So, for example, you're working on a troubleshooter screenplay.  The text
comes up:

"If your error says 'you suck', click _HERE_"  "If your error says 'Hello
Mr. Gates', click _HERE_"  and you'd be referenced to a specific frame of
another help screenplay or the same screenplay.

Could be interesting.
