Hi Jon,

thanks for the feedback! :)

Yes. JavaScript doesn't really care about the type of an argument, so
you should be able to pass a string like "0.5", or (format Number 3), or

Do you mean the box around the whole canvas (there is no dedicated
X-axis)? In fact, the box is not part of the canvas itself, but appears
because of the CSS style "canvas {border: 1px solid}".

Yes. In other cases (not in that demo) I saw that drawing a rectangle
with the size of the canvas itself, i.e.

   (csClearRect 0 0 *DX *DY)
   (csStrokeRect 0 0 *DX *DY)

displays the Rectangle with only half the line-width, because the other
half is outside the canvas drawable area.

Yeah. I was wondering too where to put it, and ended up putting it
besides "GUI Scripting" for no real special reason ;-)

I would propose that by convention we put new articles always on the
topmost position. Are there other opinions? If not, perhaps we should
(manually) re-order the existing list?

In a certain way this is already available. I usually do it this

   1. Go to the DB maintenance GUI (http://wiki.picolisp.com)
   2. Log in
   3. Click on "Documents" in the menu

By default (i.e. if you don't enter a specific name), the search dialog
shows all document reverse sorted by modification date, i.e. the latest
changes on top. There you can also click on the '@' of documents you are
interested in, and thus immediately get the "Revsion history" with the
differences between the versions etc.

Thanks! You too!
