I will try to be more positive on this one. I am currently updating  
our lab's website with rapidweaver
"web" code snippets can be inserted inside Rapidweaver pages, and, if  
it does not conflict with the rapidweaver architecture (for instance  
if the code produces only text) then the snippet output will be  
displayed gracefully within the web output page, within the user  
selected graphic theme.
Imagine that I publish a Rapidweaver site with rev snippets inside.  
will it "work"?

Customers of realmac's rapidweaver are, IMHO, typically people who  
don't want to code in javascript, php, etc.. and concentrate on  
content. From my very personal point of view, transcript is just  
simple enough not to discourage people from programming, and could  
address this category of customers.
And this, I believe, could be a selling point.
Or an empty theory?
