Hey all,

At TPAC last year and the CSS meeting in Sydney, a representative from LG
gave a presentation [1] on the CSS extensions they'd like to see for round
displays. One extensions was to position elements using polar coordinates.
I'm thinking that this might be a good case to consider as we develop
custom layout.

Their proposal is relatively simple, and can be done now using script and
absolute positioning. I would hope that what's made available for custom
layout would improve on the current situation in some way (simpler code,
faster, some benefit from avoiding abspos). It could be intriguing to see
a before/after library for polar positioning to gauge the benefits of
custom layout.

Thanks,

Alan
