Description (in English): 

"Golden Lion" is an internal-acrostic (mesostic) hologogram between the texts "Han-Shan in Indra's Net" (Fanzang) and "An Essay on the Golden Lion" (Cayley).  The algorithm at work takes each letter from "Han-Shan", finds a word from "Golden Lion" containing that letter, and displays that word.  The algorithm prefers collocation within "Golden Lion" - if possible, it will maintain series of words from "Golden Lion".

Technical notes: 

Requires MacOS 8.x+ and HyperCard Player.
