That may be it. I have a test revlet compiled with Rev 4.0, and this 
executes fine:

put url "http://jacque.on-rev.com/quoteoday.txt" into fld 2

I tried Ton's xml file too and it also works. Ton, the other thing you 
can try is to enable all the security settings and rebuild it with 
everything set. If that works, you could remove them one at a time until 
you see what's required for your app. But it sounds like the Rev version 
may be the problem.
