Rick,

There is no way around this.

RevServer is not like the desktop engine, there is no GUI. Actually the
whole web is like this, you communicate using stateless transactions
exchanging what is basically text. What you do is send a form to the browser
with the correct encoding and inputs and then you decode back this form.

check out a little document on the web called "HTTP made really easy" to
understand more about the underlining protocol and then check out w3schools
website on HTML, CSS and Javascript.

With the clear picture in mind, check out the MVC paradigm which is the one
that maps better to RevServer with HTML/CSS/JS being the View and RevServer,
the controller
