Thanks, Rob!  I have recently been working extensively with MIDI data, 
and have had to do much conversion between hex and decimal.  I was using 
an external conversion calculator, but it was designed such that it was 
difficult to copy and paste results back into my Revolution work.  So I 
thought it would be handy to have a converter available as a Rev 
plugin.  I'll take a look at what you posted and see if I can create a 
UI for it........but I'll wait a bit to make sure that no one has 
already done this (why do it twice?).
