As text handling is now, a seperate string and face is required for every change in text formatting (AFAIK) - even bold and italics, never mind different fonts and colours. That would be the biggest hurdle I think. (And I'm sure someone's jumped it after a fashion.) But I suspect waiting until REBOL 3 is the current sensible approach for coding a REBOL editor. -- Carl Read.
