[REBOL] Re: Dialects and XML

In my opinion - ability to generate/read various file formats is very
essential. Imagine some kind of e-commerce bot, putting your data into
MSWord file, .pdf file, etc.
I think the functionality is so essential, ti has to be also fast enough.
That's the right place for REBOL components. Once we will get dynamic
components, I have no problem buying /pdf /msoffice set of components for
native generating, reading various file formats ...
As for your XML<->Java<->pdf converter - it's good as instant solution, but
hardly good enough ... We even don't have "professional" XML parser and I am
not sure /Command will have one, although it was planned earlier by RT.
