[REBOL] Re: - R3 GUI

From: compkarori::gmail::com at: 8-Sep-2007 9:04

Hi Jason My belief is that it would be easier to build a simple ( for text, lines etc .. the stuff documents are made of ) postscript viewer in View than a PDF viewer. That's the main thrus of why I prefer PS to PDF. In fact most of that work has been done in the various postscript dialects we have in Rebol now.
