some thoughts fast written. you have to connect your web-page to the scripts somehow. this relation is much closer with /view than with html/cgi works offline too. but smart enough to use the web if connected. (i think this is a big point for express) very small, script with action size of text with tags :) very responsive. user can edit it (may be a point after a while) a lot can be explaind better with animation/interaction. rebol has the size/load-time of pure text, the animation of flash/whatever and the intelligence of java. animated interactive math-course with online-hiscore? can be done now :) (well, who mention bignums?)
