r3gui docs

In this link the documents contain black squares where the doc info shoud be?

Everything is in those HTML docs, but it looks like it would've been nice to download their CSS files along with the HTML files.
To read the HTML temporarily, you can highlight the blackened code with your mouse to see it, or permanently edit a copy of the files to remove all the class="<..>" identifiers in the HTML (best yet, when their site comes back online, backup their docs with the CSS and all :)

Still confused with all Rebol versions.
When i try this example:
R E B O L []
do %r3-gui.r3
view [
     text "Example window."
     button "Close" close
I get: Gui error: cannot parse the gui dialect at close
The rebol program used is: r3-view.exe
rebol 3.0 [alpha test] version (windows7)
What is the problem?

In Saphirion's version of R3-GUI, actors are required to respond to an event. You can use 'on-action to respond to the most common widget events:
do %r3-gui.r3
view gui: [
     text "Example window."
     button "Close" on-action [unview unview]

With on action, the button reacts on left clicks. How can you detect right clicks, double clicks....?
To begin with rebol, what would you suggest? Rebol2 or Rebol3??

That's all documented here:
You have these, and other more generic actors:
on-make    when face is first created to initialize special values
on-click    when mouse button clicked on face
on-drag    when dragging inside a face
on-drag-over    when dragging and are over a target face
on-drop    when drag has stopped or when a file is dropped
on-focus    when we have been given or are losing focus
on-get    to fetch state values
on-set    when state values are set
on-clear    when the state values are cleared
on-key    when key has been pressed (for our focus)
on-move    when mouse has moved
on-over    when mouse passes over or away
on-reset    when reset is needed
on-resize    when size values have changed
on-update    when face contents have changed
on-draw    when system starts to draw the face (create DRAW block)
on-scroll    when scrolling is needed
on-scroll-event    when the mouse wheel is used
on-init    when face and its parent pane are ready (including initial sizing)
on-attach    when a face is attached from another face
on-attached    when a face is triggered in the attach reaction chain
To get more info about the type of click:
on-click: [
     probe arg/type
I've always suggested getting started with Rebol using R2, only because it's more mature. There are currently many more tools, many years of code examples, and hundreds of thousands of support questions answered in the mailing list and altme archives at rebol.org. By learning R2, you can use all the main desktop OS platforms, and moving to R3 is fairly trivial once you really get to know Rebol. When Red becomes a bit more mature, you'll also have all the basics down.

The most compelling reasons to use R3 right now for you're learning Rebol: Unicode and Android support.
