see discussion of https:// and secure pages...
20Reading encrypted pages with REBOL%3F%3F%3F
SSL (which is a fat pig of a security system, over 1 meg) will not be build
any time soon.. therefore you cannot do something like "read
or "load/markup https://webpages.com".
However, REBOL can be used as the CGI backend for producing HTTPS:// secure
REBOL is not the only scripting tool lacking the ability to read HTTPS://
In fact, very few scripting languages allow you to "read" secure pages.
