Actually I did start with a browser widget but there were too many things I 
need to do which aren't easy there. I need to get the clickchunk, color 
multiple sentences differently in the same field, get user-hilited text, 
etc. But the primary reason for switching to a LC field is that I need to 
display other controls on top of it.
