No idea why you don't see them - when you clock RevOnline from the IDE, 
you should see four boxes (My Space, User Spaces, What's New and 
Learning Centre).

Since the Learning Centre is only available to licensees, there wouldn't 
be much point in putting Dreamcard Player info in there.

Jim - you need to know about the wonderful stack from Ken Ray, with a 
way to fix your copy of Runrev for this annoying dialog

Beats me :-)
I think I learnt about it from this email list (specifically, an email 
from Kevin Miller to the list back in July) when the player was first 
announced (or first beta-ed). I'm fairly sure nothing about Dreamcard is 
described in the built-in docs, and I don't see anything on the web site 
to describe secure mode.
