Microsoft Vizact 2000 was a program that allowed creation of interactive documents using HTML+TIME, adding effects such as animation. It allowed users to create dynamic documents for the Web. According to Microsoft's PressPass, it was "the first document activation application". Development was ended due to unpopularity and the program was discontinued on April 1, 2000.
