[REBOL] [FYI] A new interface paradigm without the usual windows ...

From: gerardcote::sympatico::ca at: 17-Jan-2004 10:32

Hi Robert, Just in case it interests you - and I know it will ;-) , I received this article from Inside PC MAgazine and I thought it could be interesting for a future app. written in REBOL - who knows ??? ------------------------------------------------------------------ News: The Anti Interface Virtually everyone who computes is familiar with the image metaphors used by Windows and the Macintosh OS for interface manipulation and navigation. They are the standards most of us live by. But a new product on the block has an experimental interface that tosses out the conventions we know and don't always love. Is this new approach useful? Is it important? Read our news analysis to find out. If you prefer to go directly to the article by yourself follow this link:,4149,1435152,00.asp -------------------------------------------------------------------- By the way I also visited your web site recently - very interesting look and feel - to find more about your most recent version of MAKE DOC PRO. I found in the history that version 1.0.8 is the most recent but I only found it into the REBOL Library and no DOC was available on your site either. Is there a particular reason except may be for missing time ? During this time I looked to the inside of your engine to know more and I experimented with some variations like =toc and a few others. It's working like a breeze. Great work. What I miss the most is how to to indent paragraphs correctly. My last result left me perplexed about the way to use it in some circumstances. In another area did you think about the way to include some META keywords to enclose into the HEADER section of the generated HTML page during the generation process. May be some external MDP-prefs.r would be a place to look at for inclusion of such particular things. I also would try your last REBOL FRAMEWORK very soon since I began again to experiment with coding. Can I get it too and where can I find it ? It will be a pleasure to put online my next Web Documentation using your MDP tool. And when I am about it - can you send me a model on which I could base my own Web site design - I want it to look similar in some way to your own - menus and the like... Keep up the good work Robert. Hope to be useful in a near future - more than in the past ... Thanks, Gerard
