The semicolon introduces comments in REBOL, i.e. the scanner considers ;sz=468x60;ord=979190170 to be a comment in your script and does not include it in the URL. Workarounds: Either: to-url ";sz=468x60;ord=979190170" Or: %3B is the hex representation of the ASCII code of ";". -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
