While I am still just an amateur, I have made a lot of progress thanks to all your kind help. And as a result my computer is becoming increasing productive in my work. I am accomplishing things with rebol that I never dreamed I would be able to do. Mostly my posts have been asking, and not giving much in return. Yet your answers have always been most gracious. Often you have even made a working function for me, as an example. This is the best email list I have ever been on. Many, many thanks to you all. May God bless you all with a very merry Christmas!
