Alas, palette windows are not merely a Mac window style; they're part of the
MS UI spec and can be found on most other OSes as well.  Windows apps that
use them include Freehand, Dreamweaver, GoLive, Flash, Photoshop, PaintShop
Pro, Director....

However, there is the question of which windows really need to be palettes,
and which might be better served as modeless.  The property sheet windows in
VB and ToolBook, for example, are modeless rather than palettes.
