Thanks Julian -- my next question is whether or not the WAHtmlCanvas is 
sufficiently stable at this point to use it (e.g. is the design going to 
change enough to break things as I proceed down my path and perhaps 
upgrade Seaside occasionally as I go).. If there is still working being 
done that may break things that use it, I'll probably continue using 
what I've got now (WAHtmlRenderer).. Thanks!
