Examples

Here are some icon buttons. If you don't have the application, you should see the (possibly clipped) title.

Clicking this button should launch SimpleText.
Clicking this button should launch BBEdit. This one has debugging enabled (use the source, Luke) so if there is a problem, it may drop into the debugger.
Clicking this button should launch LDapper.
Clicking this button should launch SimpleText. It will also attempt to mount an AppleShare volume which will probably fail if you are not on Baylor's network.
Clicking this button should launch SimpleText. It will also attempt to mount an AppleShare volume which will probably fail if you are not on Baylor's network. Unlike above, this one requires the AppleShare to mount or it won't launch the application.
Here are some non-icon buttons.
This should launch SimpleText if it's located in "Macintosh HD:Applications:SimpleText".
Clicking this button should launch SimpleText and open the document "Macintosh HD:Apple Extras:Mac OS Read Me Files:About Mac OS 8" if it exists.
