Hi, well there are two issues here: 1. Rebol/XYZ Browser plug-in-able I think this is a must-have to make Rebol the killer language. Think about being able to use the fat browsers as home for Rebol (SSL etc. can be used than) and have the user see a real nice interface inside the browser... no complaints like: Well, it looks nice but it's not standard, I want to use my browser... 2. Component concepts / protocolls Stuff like COM XYZ, JavaBeans, CORBA etc. are all component protocolls... and it's always a all-or-nothing concept. Mixing all these is very hard (if not impossible). So why use them? Just use the simple and straightforward concept like SOAP or Rebol, or whatevery ASCII readable format you wish. These can be translated quite easy. Robert
