The ask and answer dialogs are not built-in resources (as they were in HyperCard, if you are familiar with it). Instead, they are separate stacks. They are built into the Revolution development environment. The standalone builder will bundle them with your application automatically, so including them in your stack yourself generally isn't necessary. It does mean that you can't run your stack without the development environment, though.
