Thanks Richard.  I just submitted a note to the resizeControl  
dictionary entry.  However, I didn't know until I read your email that  
the resizeControl message is sent even when the resize happens by  
script - that's the opposite of what the dictionary says.  I don't  
mind submitting another dictionary note for that but want to check  
that it only applies to group resizing not resizing of any controls?
