Hi Richard,

Looks good.

Thanks :-)

Resizing the entire table will be possible by grabbing a corner. As for cell
heigth and width, I'd say it might be better to let the html rendering
handle column size depending of the content of table cells. About the layout
of wiki pages, what about creating a couple presentational macros (such as
this one : http://code.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Macros/ColumnMacro ) to
create CSS-based layouts instead of table-based ones ?

I can try adding a control for table border / background color... Maybe not
in the first version though, I'll look at that.

Would the iframe macros (
http://code.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Macros/IframeMacro &
http://code.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Macros/IframeNavigationMacro ) and the
include macros (
http://code.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Macros/IncludeInContextMacro &
http://code.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Macros/IncludeTopicMacro ) suit your
needs ? They will be available from the WYSIWYG interface.

Thanks for your feedback,

> Interface
> Hi fellow XWiki users,

>   - Are some features harder to reach than they should ?
>   - Are dialog boxes & trays consistent with user models of how edition
>   software usually behaves ?
>   - Do you see anything that will make an user wonder what's happening and

> Please note that the colors are only indicative at this stage - a designer
