Hi Roger,

While of course you are correct, creating a revlet as website removes a
whopping 99.9%+ of customers with browsers from ever being able to view your
content-- as the current penetration of the rev plu in is much less than
0.1%. So, it's certainly NOT what I would recommend as a solution to
publishing content on the web for the general public to view.
