[REBOL] Re: Make-doc-pro.r

Hi Robert, << I'm thinking about how to handle different versions of a document in a pragmatic manner, so that people not sensitive with version-control can use it. >> I've always liked transparent tools. From a single document standpoint, which could be edited in any ASCII editor, your options are somewhat limited. If they don't have a dialect to use for revision markups (which is not a very transparent way to work unfortunately), you're out of luck. If, however, you provide an editor then you have the option of maintaining diff/delta files. With all these document related things we're discussing, there's a line between structured and unstructured documents and how that affects what we can do with the data and how easy it is for the user to create. I only wish I had some good answers. :) --Gregg
