Focussing does not mean ignoring the rest. Woody is a server-side form 
framework and so there should be the focus. We must provide a nice 
default implementation of client side code, i.e. styling. But this 
styling should not take to much effort and time. I had the impression 
that it took to much in the last days/weeks, esp. as such a library like 
the calendar is/has to be maintained and was extended by help popup 
while this is in my opinion useless with the background of no being 
future-safe for example for XHTML. I simply could not understand why we 
put that effort into such outdated stuff while other work has also to be 
done => re-focus.
