Hi. Matthew.

Sorry I haven't replied sooner.  Lots of mail with having been away,
and I'm sprinting this week.

I agree with Huw that the HTML/CSS bit is easy and certainly doable
during beta.  Adding in controls to switch the modes will add 2-3 days
work, in my best guess.  We can certainly chat more about this on the
check-point call later today.

Until then,
