Hi David,

Yes, you should be able to select widgets to include on the "Copy Files" 
page of the standalone builder to include them in your HTML5 standalone. 
  Unfortunately there's a bit of a nasty (and hard to track down) bug 
that's causing some widgets to crash the HTML5 engine at the moment.

The best test for widgets in LCB is the "clock" widget at the moment 
(it's the way I test!)  You should be able to:

1) Create a new stack
2) Drag a "clock" widget onto the stack
3) Go to the standalone settings and
    a) Select the "clock" widget on the "Copy Files" page
    b) Enable HTML5 standalone generation
4) Build a standalone

Then when you run the standalone in a browser, the clock should work.

Let me know how you get on.
