Re: [zzdev] Re: (Resendo of Dirt-Simple Interface Specs):

Hi Mark-J--

Thanks for your quick analysis.

Actually Andrew and I had decided to try it
 both ways.

I wanted the method described first because
1)  quicker,
2)  I'd understand the code better,
3)  it would allow some interesting playing with
 color and effects (colored dimensions and more),
4)  I'm a little suspicious of frames and would like
 to compare the malleability of both ways.

Best, T
