Suitability of DELTA for fruit/seed key; use on Macs

Here is the first posting to this list. The questions are fairly basic 
and I think I will start to put together a FAQ (Frequently Asked 
Questions) file that can be sent to new and interested users of the 
DELTA system.

I do think that DELTA would be useful for Susan Mazer's project. Would 
any else like to reply to the other questions?

Many thanks for the message concerning the start-up of the Delta 
Software Mailing List, which I received through TAXACOM.

I am currently working on a photographic field guide to the fruits and 
seeds of about 1500 Peruvian lowland rainforest species, and I'm 
interested in the possibility of using Delta to produce a dichotomous 
key to allow the field identification of these taxa.

A few elementary questions (I clearly don't know much about Delta):

Is this an appropriate/possible application of Delta?

Is Delta now available for use on Macintosh computers, or only for DOS?

Where can I look into the purchase of the program?

Thanks in advance,

Susan Mazer
