[REBOL] Re: View buttons - change state

I hope you don't think I'm crazy, but I am putting together
a Rebol pluggin for the IE browser.
I can put text or binary input info into the rebol shell, parse
it, for name/value pairs, and send it back to the IE Rebol
pluggin by way of using reform with the associated data.
No page changes or refreshes needed. Now I have the Rebol
GUI for the pluggin to finish, one solid background with all the
Rebol VID objects automatically copied and put into place in the
web page. I just could not get that inverted button thing right so
I swallowed my pride and asked.
I'm not a good programmer yet in Rebol but I do OK with browser stuff.
The more I work on it, it looks like Curl. What a hack.
I can download Rscripts off pages, save, and activate them by way
of HTML links. Post Rscript from web page to Rebol shell and get info
back or from any client pop3 account, back to pluggin.
This stuff needs to look like Rebol since it's done in rebol script, so
i hope I can put it all together and give it a Rebol GUI straight from
the Rebol script.
BTW it simple one liner scripts doing all this,for IE and Rebol.
Why IE, need to use Java source to do it in NS. That's next .
If I only had a Rebol brain......
