Is RevWebPlayer *PPC* rotten?!

It's in the title ;-)
I downloaded RevMedia4 (at least) and tried to upload on the web a
little didactic stack (International Units)
I had a number of woes with revwebplayer *PPC*
sometimes (rarely) it worked*, and afterwards I was unable to read the
Safari was totally blocked, mandatory force-quit ;-<
I thought it was a plugin conflict, so I went to a clean sandbox
session: Safari crashed immediately -- but it specified that the culprit
was certainly... nprevweb!!
Firefox crashed without message
A person on the french list
<mailto:revolutionfr at yahoogroupes.fr>
pointed out that there were _several_ instances of revwebplayer running
simultaneously -- and it was the reason why it crashed!
but -- there is no mean to avoid that, as RevMedia4 tries to launch a
web page with the newly created revlet!
it tries to launch the local copy of the revlet -- is it possible to run
locally a revlet??
I was almost discouraged, and thought that indeed it was
"alpha de chez alpha" ;->
not usable, therefore...
but I read here that a number of persons succeeded in making revlets to
run -- so, what the heck?
is my Mac doomed?
at this time, I had an idea -- my Mac is in fact a *PPC* Mac, a G5 iMac
so, why not trying on a Intel Mac??
I borrowed my spouse's Mac Mini, installed the revwebplayer x86
-- and it worked!!!
Safari as a charm -- but the paranoid Firefox complained ;->
So, my very first productions:
Is it possible to convert to "french" date?
and a preversion for prefixes in the SI
* it worked _once_ on the RevMedia 4 page
