Changed all sound files to .WAV format, and updated HTML files to reflect this change.
9 August 1999
Fixed flash card section in vocabulary; I had moved some files one level of directory lower and forgotten to fix the references to the syllable pictures and JavaScript routines. Thanks to Larry Poindexter for finding this one.

Added pages to practice alphabetical order for consonants and vowels.

Added section on giving directions.
7 June 1998
Fixed a bug in kinput.js; the entire input area now erases before showing a correct answer in response to the "Show answer" button.

Added a set of vocabulary flash cards for a test I have on Tuesday in Korean class. Not accessible from main menu, but from this link for the terminally curious.

11 May 1998
In order to make the tutorial work with the Opera browser, the syllable pictures have all had .gif added as a suffix. This will require people who are downloading kintro.zip to also download syll.zip to keep everything in synch.
5 May 1998
Massive changes to Korean syllable input routine:
  1. "nch" is now accepted as last component of a syllable
  2. Entering "h-a-n-a" will automagically result in "ha-na" (end syllable key is no longer needed)
  3. Added "reset" key to entry grid
Added section on "to exist/to not exist"
22 April 1998
Added new section on verbs; includes an "auto-conjugator."
