Wow, that's great. I've updated the wiki page to reflect that.

Yes, that would be best.

Yup agree. This would be part of satisfying Chandler Desktop remote
users as opposed to just focusing on casual collaborators. We need to
implement a separate notion of 'sharing with yourself' that is
distinct from sharing with others. From Morgen's comments on various

hopefully cover the most important problem areas.

What's the fixed height? Need to match the 'info' icon with the
height of the selector.

Do you also need specifications for rollover and mousedown effects?
I've been adding a 33% white transparent layer for rollover and 66%
black transparent layer for mousedown effect. Is that possible to do
