Read

read now returns only binary and needs to be converted to text if necessary.

In Rebol 2, you would do this

read http://www.rebol.com

or

to string! read/binary http://www.rebol.com

but in Ren-c the /binary refinement is gone. It's now

to text! read http://www.rebol.com

or 

read/string http://www.rebol.com

where read/stringConvert UTF and line terminators to standard text string
