Yeah, but how much are you used to serious CSS-intensive ones? ;-) [try
writing some text, then turn it into a paragraph and then change the
"class" to something fancy like "note" or "fixme", isn't that cool?]

well, that comes for free in Midas, I don't deserve any credit for this.

Thanks. I consider this a compliment. I was myself very impressed by the
work done by the Xopus people (I remember when Michael showed that to
myself and Giacomo was next to me and said "you're going to love this"
and I was very skeptical, then my jaw went almost down on the floor...
it was because of Xopus that I started to seriously considering DHTML

I'm specially proud of the flow part. I took some of Chris great ideas
that he used in the pet store example and improved on them. I think that
the 'dispatching' method of introspecting the flow to see if the action
is present is a really cool and powerful concept.

And the entire linotype is 120 lines of flowscript code.

I don't think I need to say anything more. ;-)
