I suspect you ran into a problem caused by a dependency on a PList  
parser class I used to initialize a state table and did not include  
in the package.  I think I have fixed this by including the class in  
the package, but I need to try a clean load.

A modern web browser needs to be sure to implement the box model  
specified in css2.

There is also a fair amount of useful info on how mozilla does layout  

Table layout behavior is specified here:

This stuff is a lot more rigorously specified now than it was when  
Scamper was written.  Its just a matter of digging up the  
instructions and implementing them.

I'd help more if I had a bit more time.  Perhaps after the first of  
the year I'll have some time.
