I had not even thought of working with the existing "New Web Page" stuff.

have not checked his color picker out recently and am getting it confused in my mind
with another one. Also NoteTab using Ctrl + F5 has a good color picker built in
which I did not even know about til recently.
The most important thing I think would be that the library be able to produce all
the style sheet (external, in head, and within an HTML element) rules that conform
to either CSS or CSS2 standards. It would have to be pretty exhaustively complete.
It being easy to use would be great. I have a good clip library on my computer
written by Stephen W. Cote. It is possible, that it is all that is necessary, or he
would not mind friendly additions to it. I also have a library called mystylesheet
which is pretty complete, but I don't think it produces good rules. I can't
remember if I wrote it or not. It kind of looks like my style of coding, but if I
wrote it it is more than a year old.
Any way, I want to finish the embedding monster before getting any more irons in the
fire, and the CSS library might well have been wrapped up by a real clip whiz by
