Hmm - I'd not done anything with make-doc, though I've seen mention of it often enough. So, I found the make-doc.r script and ran it, and it asked me for a file, so I gave it a little script to do whatever it does with a file, and it opened a browser window, but then the browser gave me a no-DNS-entry-found error. I think perhaps I'm missing something... So instead I just pasted the script into your box and hit OK. (:

Yes, it was readable, though I wouldn't say tidy, as font sizes changed here and there for no apparent reason and there was a big, bold "Contents" in the REBOL header that wasn't in the original file. But then, this wasn't "make-doc" text, so I expect its format was wrong for starters.

Our wish for looks over clarity has not been totally successful yet. (: -- Carl Read
