Wondering about LC and HTML5

Chipp,

You know what? I already have part of the geometry manager somewhat working.
You can see that rectangle graphics, it has a geometry setting for absolute
position on the right side, I use that as a hint that the given object
should have width: 100% instead of its actual width... it is all about
hints....

In the movie the graphic fills 100% of the container. The webpage is set to
1000px wide, so the content is centered with a div.

The hard part of geometry is the whole "stay 20 pixels from this control"
thing... One thing at a time!

I am glad you liked it. :-)
