A polygon is derived from a list of points,
one per line: 


Adding an empty line between points in the list
adds an invisible point to the polygon that changes
the polygon's dimensions without adding to the fill 
or stroke of the polygon. 



Using this technique, one could establish the
*physical* topleft of a polygon to occur at
one location while the *visible* topleft of the
polygon occurs at a different location.

Recently, i tried to use this technique, but the
polygon graphic get filled in the wrong places
and the selection area of the graphic grows
too much.

Probably the wrong fill is a side effect of applying
the new property named fillRule:

I will be very grateful if some of you could post
a stack that demostrate this technique and test
the fillRule property with this background
filled polygon graphic.

Thanks in advance!
