Hi Conrad,
unfortunately that is not that intuitive nor self explained as that. But if you make one root component, that I bet you need anyway, you can use the #updateRoot: of that root component. If that component is always parent of any of your web app components and use its #updateRoot: as if it were global to the app, then you achieve that actually in a better design than using anything global.
For the rest all that Phillipe told you is the way to go.

Subject: [Seaside] Some Seaside 3.0 questions?

Hi, I have the following questions regarding Seaside 3.0 API: 

1) Why doesn't Seaside have an explicit head tag factory selectors? For example, I was expecting to see 
something like this: 


Note: This would be considered global within the entire Seaside application. Also, I would be able to set both my CSS and 
Javascript here. 

2) How does one set standard and event attributes on body tag? For example, I would like to be able to set the following 
standard attributes: 

class, dir, id, lang, style, title, and xml:lang 

event attributes: 

onlick, ondbclick, and so on 

3) How does one set the appropriate attributes html tag? For example, xmlns, dir, lang, and xml:lang. 

4) When one is setting these attributes in (1), (2), and (3) will they be global to the component in question or will they be 
global to all components? 

Thanks in advance,
