[REBOL] make string!

From: ryan::christiansen::intellisol::com at: 26-Jun-2001 17:02

Try as I might, I am unable to make an integer! value into a string! value, EXCEPT when I use 'append to append the integer! value to a string! value. Why can 'append take care of changing the datatype while make string! cannot? For example:
>> a: 2
== 2
>> b: make string! a
== ""
>> b
== ""
>> b: make string! 1
== ""
>> append b a
== "2"
>> b
== "2"
>> string? b
== true
