I am new to Smalltalk and Seaside. You should do it my way. ;-)

OK, I'll try to ignore the friction I'm feeling right now. At
least I'm only seeing small parts of the whole page at any time.
Just like I only see small parts of the whole program, compared
to other programming languages.

Halos help me find which part of the page is reponsible in case I
find some ugly looking layout errors.

OK, I'll deal with it.
