Which page are you referring to?

thispage which gives some other data about stuff related to VID/View. its
like a user accumulated page of tidbits, FAQ &Howto... useful for beginners
&intermediate level REBOLers very cool when using search function of a
browser you can discover many little tricks which aren't easily covered in
reference manuals... -MAx On Fri, Sep 11, 2009 at 9:48 PM, Maxim
Olivier-Adlhoch <moliad-gmail.com> w= rote: Hi all, The real reference
documentation to VID/View is here:
http://www.rebol.com/docs/view-system.htmlI refer to it often, still. VID
is just a dialect over view, and just about everything in view is used
directly by the code in VID, so just knowing what view can do, is the best
way to understand VID. The init and feel code of most styles is also a VERY
good place to look to know how the various styles work. =A0things like the
obscure face/colors &face/fonts block can be understood by looking at these.

Another common response to this question is "Just study the source". Go= od,

how much ti= me have its users lost because the View/VID docs were only half
done X numb= er of years back and then left at that stage? -- Carl Read. --
