Andre, You're absolutely correct that my expectations were too high. I wasn't complaining but just explaining why I wasn't using revServer yet and therefore couldn't address Paulo's question. ;-)

The revServer product description in the store reads "Pre-release 2. Supports Linux and Mac OS X Darwin. Text encoding support, image rendering and LiveCode stack support intended for the first shipping version." I look forward to it being able to meet these launch-ready capabilities. 

Indeed, I'd welcome any new pre-release dated later than 16 June 2010, so that I didn't feel that the revServer pre-release programme wasn't merely a ruse to gain investment for iOS development.
