Thanks Tuviah - I just downloaded "r2", and I'm looking it over. Yes, we 
understood the mySQL part - we just normally use it in combination with 
PHP. I am looking at the possibility of using Rev for our CGI work as 
well, since it allows both myself and my CGI code guy to work as a team 
on it (I don't do PHP myself.) Because I have gotten us both 
professional Rev licenses, it could really streamline our scripting 

Thanks again.
