I've uploaded three JPGs (of the mac build) with callouts to the bottom of
the .6 Cleanup page.
The first deals with beveling and alignment issues.
The second deals with margins, gutters and borders. (Margins are like
cellpadding and gutters are like cellspacing. Margins pad the insides of
things. Gutters put space between things.)
The last is a composite of the first two.
It would be great to get a round of feedback on how helpful, not helpful
this particular approach to callouts is either in a face to face meeting
or via the list. And then I can do another one for windows.
A lot of the callouts refer to things of very few pixels...it might be
helpful to load these images into something that let's you zoom in and
