That will be great!

I know, at least in general terms, how CGI scripts work, but as I understand it, gb.web.gui hides the complexities of outputting to the webclient so you can sort of use a design at least similar to a desktop gui, is that right? Anyway, my first problem was while designing the gui interface, I could not get the components to do what I thought they would do, coming from a desktop gui metaphor. I started from the Hello World project created from New Project and was impressed by it's simplicity and capability, then started changing things around, but could never get it to look like I thought it should. Maybe my expectations are all wrong?
