Hi, that's where I want to go to but step by step. Simple things first and than
the rest. My goal is to expand make-doc-pro to handle blocks for rebol code that
will produce an output string which is than substituted for the rebol code. This
would give you the most flexible solution.

Yep, and not only for cell values but everywhere in a make-doc-pro text.

Referencing text/code blocks by name is something I'm going to add too. This
enables you to use predefined content, layouts etc. Something like the template
idea of word-processors.

I like this for headings but without the  braces. I think I will add this.
