To determine if a script exists on a page before evaluating it, you can use the script? function. old: if page: script http://www.rebol.com [do page] new: if page: script? http://www.rebol.com [do page] Note that the script? function will read of the page from the web site and will return the page at its REBOL header position. ;# mailto: [bobr--dprc--net]

The section where you discuss FTP could use some examples as to how using read [ scheme: 'FTP host: foo.fee.ftp.com ...etc. ] is not only useful but necessary as in the case where an odd password is used for the FTP server such as PW: "123/abc" <-- slash is legal for Password, but fools the parser... So read [scheme ...] is necessary. I remember this happened to me when first learning REBOL last year. Also, what about a few more hints on building new protocols such as LDAP, or something.
