Hi Jacqueline,

For reliability I do recommend using an RFC 1738 URL with a browser, 
rather than a "LiveCode-style" file URL.

For example, "file:///Users/peterbrett/My%20File%20Name.doc" rather than 
"file:/Users/peterbrett/My File Name.doc"

Do the problems with the #-component in revBrowser go away if you use an 
RFC 1738 file URL?
