Hi Kevin,

That is excellent!

I broke it by clicking in the box above "Greens, SVG, Windows".  You
will also notice that when going over it with the mouse you see NaN and
#IND everywhwere.

I'm getting script errors in IE - safari may be swallowing these, I've
reports of the plugin on the mac doing so.

Internet explorer has a pluggable language, (I don't know of a php, but
