I've certainly never heard of OS-9 Scripsit.  I just looked through my
old copies of the 89 Express Order Software catalog and two different
"Supplemental Software Catalog"s with no mention of it.

My only experience with Scripsit was the Color Scripsit II ROM pak.
Dynastar is much better -- though it is a wordstar work-alike, if that
means anything to you.
