Turns out that Microsoft lets you free re-distribute any Cue CArds you
make with the little applet they ship with Project. Francine at
Communitech talked with them and confirmed this. The applet is a not too
fancy WinHelp with Word Basic macros setup that is easy enough to
replicate, anyway, if you know WinHelp and Word, and can be customized to
look differently by editing the HPJ and the style sheet.
