That's really too much honour for me, but I'm always glad to help.
There is a nice stack by Richard, explaining the message hierarchy.
You can find it here: <http://support.runrev.com/scriptingconferences/>
The message hierarchy is extensively documented in the HyperCard
literature. I don't know of any good reference directly connected
with Revolution, except fo page 103 of the user manual PDF included
with Revolution 2.7.1 and later.
