 yes, that's because i had started with the gtk port, and was going
through the examples one-by-one removing them and replacing them with

 as i only got up to the "Info" tab of KitchenSink, there is still
quite a bit to do.  i _say_ quite a bit - but it's only about ...
16-24 hours of work.

 pyjamas is surprisingly small.

 sorry!  removing them :)

 yeah.  and the pyjamas ui.HTML() class is based on a Qt.QLabel().  if
that can be fixed, then there's a fair good reason to continue.

  *sharp intake of breath* :)  yehhh, i did word-breaking by wrapping
groups of 8 letters at a time in floating-divs once, to simulate word-
breaking in a situation where the column width was 200px and people
were putting in web site addresses of 50 chars in length.... yukk.
