I see what you mean, and I did try it that way - but it wouldn't let me.. Here's basically how it gets the tags and such for the form.. Load/markup to separate the tags, so a tag for, say, a field becomes <INPUT Type="Text" Name="Whatever"> it parses out the Type and Name, then sticks the Rebol form (using 'field) onto the end of the file that becomes the layout, and adds that F1P1/text onto Form1 block - Append and Insert won't let me simply stick it on the way you suggested, so I had to make a (huge) workaround. It would have been far simpler had I configured it for 1 form a page, but I've seen web pages with 3+ forms.. including one of my own XD If you need it I'm willing to post part of my code
