	By multi-threaded, I take it you mean having multiple documents
you can pull up and take them in the direction that you want independent
of the other loaded documents.
	If this is the case, then by all means take a look at DosLynx,
which uses a MDI (multiple document interface) to handle this type of
multi-threading.  It does this with CERN WWWlib 2.14 with no special
modifications to the library.
	All considerations regarding multi-threading are handled by the
client by making the functions in GridText.c take special care on where
their screen output is sent specific to the HText object currently being
