But I'm right in saying icons don't run their attached scripts when clicked on, aren't I? (And other users, is this what you're getting too? Is this what's supposed to be happening?) Images do show in a window when you click on an icon though, however this seems to be due to image %script.r following the icon definition. i.e... icon "Image" %bay.jpg image %bay.jpg shows the bay image. The other script icons are mostly of the... icon "Buttons" %buttons.r variety, and don't seem to do any more than download the script. Do they, like images, need more words to have the script run as well? If so, what?

'launch is (I think) for starting another console session, (or perhaps even launching executables? Someone probably needs to correct me on this...), and I think I saw it's only to be in the commercial versions of REBOL, (Command and such), though I don't know if that's the official word. 'browse is in other Views and I'm sure is destined for the Amiga version. It's for telling your web-browser of choice to load such and such a webpage.
