Thanks Jerry and Sarah. This  looks very interesting.

It would be helpful to me if you would contrast and compare Rodeo's  
web apps with Revolutions  current revlets. What are its limitations  
and advantages vis-a-vis Rev?

My questions are VERY basic. Does Rodeo require a plug-in? Does it  
translate Rev Talk into HTML or some variant thereof? (If this is a  
viable option, why didn't RunRev go that route?) When you speak of  
tables, are these Data Grids and/or the plain vanilla table fields--or  

I'm sure that whatever you and Sarah are cooking up for us will be  

Best regards,

Jim Hurley
