Subject Re: Form Label Vertical Alignment
Date Mon, 31 Aug 2009 15:22:42 GMT
Now that I think of it, I'm wondering if it is even necessary to make  
this configurable in TerraFormSkin. Is there actually a case where we  
would not want the form labels to be baseline-aligned? I do think that  
a style is appropriate for FlowPane, though.
