huh you don't need colored text sometimes that seems strange to me :)

Perhaps and surely FTPGadget and AltME are commercial quality UIs but forgive me if I insist that if I want to write a commercial package with RTF fields what can I do since I can't even interface with existing activex components :). As an alternative would it be possible to use another platform (Delphi etc...) and use Rebol as dll-like engine. I saw once a utility who could turn a VB.exe into a dll the idea could be applied to Rebol (because communicating by TCP-IP between Delphi and Rebol no thanks it will reming me of awful DDE-like stuff).
