Max, Which page are you referring to? Maxim Olivier-Adlhoch wrote: by pure circumstances... I just came across 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 <>[1] w= rote: Hi all, The real reference documentation to VID/View is here:[2]I 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. -MAx On Fri, Sep 11, 2009 at 7:02 PM, Carl Read <>[3] wrote: On Friday, 11-September-2009 at 9:18:28 David den Haring wrote, Another common response to this question is "Just study the source".
