Hi Bob,

Even if you want to run on RevServer, the LC generated still needs to handle
HTML/CSS-- so knowledge of them is essential. Dan's doing well. I'll mention
you said hi on Monday when I next talk with him.

LiveCode, couldn't he host his existing site on the on-Rev server and then
plonk chunks of LV functionality on his pages ?

website on cards and have it convert to a website-- wouldn't that be cool if
you could!
>> Websites are typically created from HTML, CSS, and sometimes serverside
scripting which helps fill in the dynamic portions of the website. Sometimes
database calls also need to be made as well.
>> You can use LC for the serverside scripting, but you'll still need to do
the HTML and CSS for the look and feel for your website. If this is all a
bit complicated, you may want to try some of the self serve website builders
available out there. Many of them require no previous knowledge of HTML,
CSS, or scripting whatsoever
