You are right, In the time you asked me for some of my styles I did one styleset for a commercial application...unfortunately, this project seems to be dead so the situation is different...moreover those styles you have found in th RFM release were mostly developed for the VID1.3 project which is non-comercial. I just wanted to wait a little bit with the public release because all those styles are still in beta stage and was afraid to spread inconsistent stlyes into wide public but I changed my mind...Now you can use them aso you like in any project for free but don't blame me for any problems, bugs etc. just report them to me and I will try to do something with it;). I believe that the VID project will continue in the very near future so finally everyone will be able to use all my(and others) work I put into it either in the upcomming Rebol/View or just as a kind of extension... I know that in current situation there is not much oportunities to develop in Rebol for money but i still believe that one day...;) regards, Cyphre
