HTML,XML DOM is built as a tree structure from a document. In order 
to get or set something you must search the

entire tree with each call to a tag. Before returning a single tag 
it must first build a nodelist of all alike tags before
a method (function call) can be used. 

You actually need a browser, editor or IDE, and code experience with 
, javascript, html, css, HTML DOM, XML DOM,

HTML5, and to move or share across networks, XSL, XSLT, Xpath, XQuery, 
Ajax, a server, and server-side/backend with
access to client-side frontends, security, and administration. WWWOOOOOWWW!.

Rebol parse along with block searching is simpler, faster, easier 
to code, send, or recieve and uses less memory.

The Rebol choir membors know how to do all that need-to-know in one 
language, Rebol!, WWWOOOOWWW!....

The Rebol upjump (advantage) is a serious downfall. To spend the 
time using others stuff (bloatware) is a big time 

waister wich leaves Rebol all but alone, by itself and unused cause 
that bloatware in its domain can do it better 

when it's supported by more of the standard bloatware stuff. But 
have you seen how many disparate languages 
you need to use in a Web full stack process. 

To get people to use Rebol it has to have modules, FFI, execute C 
code, plug-ins,  GPU'ed, data-based,  IOS-Android 

and media/browser  access, embedable, AI, CLOUD-able, all wrapped 
up with a pretty open source bow. Please. 

Thats why i believe RED is the right direction for Rebol. But the 
wrong direction. Because people only want stuff. Either 

that suff has to do more stuff or be a part of the best known stuff 
to make them feel better or a part of the best stuff
going on at that moment.

So i give in. I want Rebol to catch on, not catch up. The Rebol-DOM 
is a way to load every body's stuff in, parse that stuff

up, change stuff, and send that stuff back out and let that other 
bloatware stuff deal with it.

Rebol don't need no stuff. It needs to progressively replace it by 
hiding the Rebol language and acting like a cloud

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) open source messenger through 
the internet. Nothing needs to change. This is what

Rebol is and does already. Rebol just needs this kind of App to materialize 
and offer itself up on a subscription base.

Had errors in %rebol-DOM.r

From #"," characters and was returning "==" instead of "=" in DOM/html.
Should be fixed now.
