And with this version of View is not possible. If you're thinking about writing one, please forget it. You run in numerous problems with allign fonts, 'size-text giving strange results, you cannot find where's font's baseline etc etc etc... REBOL/View will need some native support for rich text (and unicode) to do that kind of thing. Me and Cyphre spend lots of nights on this and each one made cca 3 totally different versions of some different color/size/style text-editors, but every was far from perfect. If you forget different size of fonts you can do that with some problems. Bye, Bolek(re)
