And for a lot of other people

This is exactly what I meant to express with "Both programs ...of course 
do not compare to the potential of XTalk languages". What constitutes a 
'multimedia authoring system' though is a matter of definition, and it 
would not hurt Rev to be put in such a category.

There are a lot of things not everyone needs - even in Rev. But some 
people - like Paul Salyers to whom I responded - would like to have an 
integrated web object. And I don't think  I was "arguing about the 
modest fee to add altbrowser" - my plea was to integrate altBrowser into 
Rev - I just mentioned the interesting prices of these "low-end 
alternatives for beginning programmers" (my words) .--

At which point there remains to wish you - and all list members - a 
Merry Xmas and some quiet and possibly creative days "between the years" 
- as we would say in this region of the world.

Best regards,
