That's a great initiative.

I just have had a look at the History of FutureBASIC chapter. It seems 
to me that it is not totally accurate, but I'm not skilled enough in 
English to do the correction on my own, and I confess that my memory is 
a bit fuzzy.
I believe that right after ZBasic came FutureBASIC which became FBII 
(perhaps when PG PRO was included in the IDE), then came FB^3 which was 
able to produce also PPC and FAT applications (in 1999-2000), then came 
FB4 (when the IDE was carbonized, I think).

Maybe someone with a better memory than mine can update this chapter.
