The ScreenSteps filter was developed to integrate with hosted Web sites provided to ScreenSteps clients. The filter will display spaces, manuals, buckets and lessons from the site inline wherever the filtered string is found. This is useful for rapidly developing step-by-step how-to instructions to include within a user's course.
