[REBOL] Re: Checkbox state is not changing

I think an upgraded help function should address some of these problems.
help native! lists all of the native words.
>From there you can get help on each function with help function name.
help/dialect view function! ; or some other syntax to show words
available in dialect
help/dialect view face
help/dialect layout field
maybe extend to
help/dialect parse thru

With VID, you do need a spec sheet. With text-list for instance,
data's not enough. There's picked and other words you need to know
This is mainly a docs problem though. Currently you have to guess
that "Data: Used by VID for storing other information about the face.
Outside of VID this field can be freely used by programs." means, in
relation to check, where its checked state is stored. Let's hope
that View book is out soon...
