Hi Simon,
Well that web page that shows in RevBrowser is based on a text file that's
yours to create.
You could parse the loaded page and reconfigure it to your needs. I don't
think there's anything in the revbrowser lib that indexes content in that
way that you ask, if I understand what you are requesting. But every message
and action that is available in a regular browser is available in
RevBrowser. Same code as the browser you are used to.

search for "browser" in the docs to see all the commands.  Don't use the old
XBrowser commands.

look up MERGE in the docs for one way to parse and replace multiple

 Remember that CSS and javascript will be available too, as well as AJAX-y
access to the DOM. Perhaps you should define 'communicate' a little further
- what do you want to do?
