Do you mean that when a page opens you want the Rev app to do something
according to what the message is in the web page?
If you had something like the following check after a page loads:
put revBrowserGet(tBrowserId, "htmltext") into tBrowserHtml
And then have a message in tBrowserHtml which was meant for the Rev app
but would not display in the browser (like a comment or something).
When the Rev app saw a particular message it could act accordingly,
responding after matching that text to a list of desired actions.
