I would start working with the 2.6a3 branch.  I'm not sure if 2.5 has
the Canvas classes.  They are definitely the way things are headed and
much nicer to use.  Here is a link to my response to a similar


One little trick with the Canvas / Brush classes, you should call
with: or text: last when cascade several messages i.e.

html anchor
    callback: [self doSomething];
    id: 'anchorId';
    text: 'Click Me!'.

html div id: 'myDiv'; with:
   [html text: 'hello']
