[REBOL] Re: What else don't I know

Personally I don't bother too much now since this is an evolutive system and keeping
up language and Docs really synchronized all
the time is far from easy. But you're right since this feature is added to View only.
Then it can't be in the dictionary that covers
only the core words.
But this simply confirms me that there is definitely something more to add to the already
Looking at the emailer source I found that some variable named "lo" is used but nowhere
it has been defined befor its use - I know
that it is the definition of the layout used by emailer but where is it defined and how
can we know such internal secret features
(what they are, what are their parameters their meaning and finally how to use them).
This seems to be true for many of the View features like the styles facets with their
meaning and allocated values - even the source
is not allways useful to many of us in such a case - firstly because most of us are not
good enough at REBOL to decypher the
underlying meaning of things even if we can get at their names and default values. System
defaults are another place where things
are not clear to me. Something should be clarified about this and other plots by RT or
some well informed ppl that would contribute
to lever off the veil that actually covers these officially undocumented parts.
This is one of the most intriguing and frustratring things that absolutely deserves more
documentation in a near future. When every
other thing will have been done in due form - as much as we'll be able to do ourselves.
Thanks for remembering this fact - I really forgot to add it to my wish list of Docs
