No, not trying to build anything, just trying to understand how the browser

Looking at the OmniBrowser, I don't see anything as direct as the
'openEditString:' code, 
but it does have an OBBrowser>>buildOn: method, which does get executed, and
which appears 
to create the browser view from some kind of description. This might also
explain why 
it takes longer to come up on the screen than using the older 'Browser'.
