No, these things are handled by the TCP layer, not by REBOL. The problem is most likely that the web server prematurely closes the connection, for whatever reason. That is not all that uncommon. Happens all the time in web browsers and results in missing images or backgrounds. Petr, try using open/direct instead of a plain open. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
