      Without meaning to be painfully pedantic, if you mean
      by LISP (or lisp since this looks a bit quieter on the
      page :) that you are talking about common lisp --
      which I belive the examples to be implemented in --
      then, no, scheme is not "a subset" of lisp. There are
      elements in the scheme standare that are not -- or can
      not -- be implemented in common lisp.

      If however, you mean by *a* "LISP," that scheme can
      trace ancedance from the early work by McCarthy and
      others, then yes, scheme is a lisp. However, rather
      like the dolphin and the blue whale, they are somewhat
      different in form and function. Hope this helps.

      Cetaceanly yours,
