Thank you MAx. My planned (but not implimented;) reply to Greg would have been something along the lines that leaving out the datatypes in his REBOL-Simple would've been missing the point of REBOL, but I doubt I would've shed much light on the why. So maybe REBOL-Simple shouldn't be a dialect, but just a reduced set of REBOL's default words - and perhaps a few new ones? -- Carl Read.
