Thanks! And that was quick!
I tried it and it worke great, nice little thing, now i have something
to work from!
Regarding the accepting-values and :own-window. I didn't get that to
work. Do I need to do something special to get a new window? The 0.9.1
spec said something about it beeing unimplemented so I didn't research
it too much.
Here it says:
"There is no gadget-based implementation of accepting-values. own-window
is not supported."
But now that I know it works I will try a bit harder to get it to work!
