It is common in IT that you can open files only with the program that created it (or understands and converts the format in question)
.doc -> Microsoft Word
.xls -> Microsoft Excel
.ppt -> Microsoft Powerpoint
.txt -> Wordpad or any ASCII editor (as .txt is pure ASCII)
.Mod -> Oberon.Edit (it is NOT pure ASCII, see it rather like .doc)
.Graph, .Lib -> Oberon.Draw
Nobody ever thinks of opening an .xls in Wordpad. Why would you like to open Oberon .Text files in a Wordpad?
First convert .Text to .txt (EditTools.StoreAscii) and then open it in any ASCII editor.

Thanks for explaining. I've expanded Note  (now the only note)
Two puzzles for J. Doe novice.
* ETH Oberon has the WTS module. Neither WTS.Mod nor WTS.Tool gives a
hint at the derivation of acronym WTS. ?
* The HTML compiler page in question is read with a Web browser but an
Oberon system is almost essential to read an Oberon Text. (Gedit in
Linux will open a Text but the warning and binary header will confuse
a novice.) Fortunately the language report is available as HTML from
UCSD. If there is no objection I should cast the change list to HTML.
Thanks again, ... Lyall E.
