Hi Philip,

paste and select your scripts in a Wiki World. Then open a context  
menu, go to 'Text functions...' and choose 'add as preamble to current  
ChangeSet' or 'add as postscript to current ChangeSet'.

When you have new Morph definitions and instances of those Morphs  
should be saved with the page, put the definitions in the preamble  
(because the preamble is evaluated before the World is serialized). If  
you have scripts which are accessing the WorldMorph or its submorphs  
than put those into the postscript.

You can than view and change the ChangeSet by opening the  
SystemBrowser and choose 'ChangeSet for World' in the left pane (at  
the bottom).
