Until Rebol has its own robust solution, Flash is also a good tool for printing. Oldes' %make-swf.r allows considerable Rebol interface to this already :-) Players for Mac, Windows, Linux [and some other platforms with restricted features] aveFlash Can be used within a Web Browser, or as standalone executable which bundles the flash player and allows many more features via 3rd party extension products: Unlike PDF, no Adobe splash screen to go through, plus better control of which graphic area/page will print. l In Flash fonts can be completely embedded so no system font dependency. Excellent visual scalability, speed and interactivity. Flash also handles Unicode. ./Jason
