Wow, Frank, I asked for a pence and you gave me a pound. Thanks! I can readily appreciate the value of saving the context with the information structure, especially in an application that is generating information dynamically. In order to try it out, I set up some test objects with methods that alter the static information, and, needless to say, it worked great. I feel certain that this approach will come in handy someday. To be honest, though, my REBOL skills are too new to be able to understand *how* you did this, but that will come with time. Thanks! --Scott
