Would be nice if rebol could layout faces like text (wrapping..)
and edit them.
Oberon V4 does this, and you can insert pictures, animations,
and so on in the normal editor. Cool.
Someone wrote a webbrowser with this, where urls and so on are
simply special elements. With a html-parser/saver.
You can use the normal editor-core to browse/write html there.
We would give face a block instead of text,
and could insert/remove elements and then 'show.
And generating the block with an integrated parse-rule from text.
