Is the HTML page not readable on iPad? Here's a PDF copy of the web page: http://gui-tar.com/r3book.pdf

I find myself still waiting for Red to become more complete (File / Web IO) so I can use it.
Meanwhile I use R2 to exercise (Windows, Mac, Linux).
Nick's extensive documents are a great inspiration and I thought I make them more accessible to myself especially on tablets but also on pc's.
Maybe others find it useful too.
Nick, Nenad and Ladislav:
I hope you don't mind me using your docs in this website - otherwise please let me know.
Pharoer, try this -it works on my ipad and note 10.1 as well as on phones and desktops
My code is very experimental (quick and dirty) - a reason why I don't think I can publish it (yet?).
However the rebol file that drives the page is below - it might show why we love Rebol - the language.

in case a beginner wants to play with the above code:
the img-url entry in nickslearnrebol got messed up somehow. Remove everything from " target= ..... to the rest of the line

ralfw, you can already use Red with FileIO and networking by using Kaj's excellent bindings available on the red-lang.org site at the bottom of the "Contributions" page. Kaj and I have created some commercial products using this method.
