PLEASE NOTE - as of January 2022, we are no longer selling registration keys for Markin and TexToys.

The product information on this site is now provided for information only. We will continue to support existing registered users until at least July 2022, but cannot support software installations on Windows11. If you wish to continue to use Markin or TexToys, please do not upgrade to Windows11.

This decision has been taken because we are not confident of being able to maintain and update our software in a way which fulfils Microsoft's requirements for Windows 11 software. We may eventually provide free versions of the programs, with strictly limited support and update provision.

If you need to have your existing registration key re-sent, or you are keen to use the programs even without a proper commitment to having support and updates, we may be prepared to provide a registration key on a strictly limited basis - please contact us by email for details.

What is TexToys?

TexToys is a suite of two authoring programs, WebRhubarb and WebSequitur. The programs are used to create web pages (HTML documents) which contain interactive language-learning exercises. The exercises are based on the Rhubarb and Sequitur programs originally developed by John and Muriel Higgins.

Once you have created the exercises, you can deliver them to your students in the form of web pages.

Although it contains two different authoring programs, TexToys is downloaded and installed as a single package - see the download page for details.

TexToys is shareware, so you can download and install it free of charge. However, the shareware package is restricted - to take full advantage of all the program and hosting features, you must register the TexToys package using the secure online order form. We then send you a licence key, which you can enter into the program to remove the restrictions.


As well as pages containing detailed information about each program, we have also included a full tutorial for both programs on this site. Click here to begin this tutorial.
