The way up is always at position 4. The names of the doors are: UpOn, UpOff, Down1On, Down1Off, Down2on, etc.. Down6Off
The information panel consists of the frame (Frame1, Frame2, Frame3, Frame4, for the different file-systems) and the content showing the place corresponding to the file system and the place: Content210 means the starting place, windows 95 style, on the way from home directory to the working directory. That means that in the encoding Contentxyz, x stands for the system, y for the way, z for the room-number.
The content of a room is shown in a interaction Icon.
Rooms are stacked recursively into each other. This would allow for later following a branching way instead of linear approach. Rooms respectively are named Roomyz, for instance Room10 for the starting room of way 1.
Usually content is a text to read.
