There's also the "UI Library" released at the same time: <http:// 

It's a bunch of javascript code which abstracts away some of the more  
painful browser-specific stuff into an "API". What looks of  
particular interest is the "event utility" library <http:// 
developer.yahoo.net/yui/event/index.html>. For "javascript event" you  
could read "erlang message" if you plugged it into something like  
Chris Double's server push code <http://www.bluishcoder.co.nz/2005/11/ 

At some point I've got to produce a little GUI tool to monitor an  
internal application (it seems not everyone loves my approach of  
having an erlang shell as the "control panel") and I'm quite tempted  
to try to use something like this to push out status events rather  
than trying to do it in gs.
