Hi, Joanna, If you are looking at larger scale distribution, perhaps you should contact REBOL Technologies about your plan and get a real quote. There is a chance that you may be misinterpreting the idea behind the licensing scheme. Th price of an email asking them about your specific ideas is "free"! You may be surprised. BTW, I still like your version of the pdf generation idea. --Scott Jones
