Thanks for a quick answer.

That's one of the things that I have a problem understanding. From
what I have read in different threads in the group and from looking at
some other projects, people tend to avoid using the
FixedLayout/EvenBox path. Why, is a mystery to me.

I'll definitely have a look at your project to see how I could adopt
that for my use.


p.s. I've just noticed your MonoWorks project. Will ask you about that
in a separate email.
