XmHTML: High level graphical objects (e.g. ContourPlot, VectorPlot) are configured using resources similar to those of Motif or the XmHTML widget itself. A tree widget displays information about the resources and has editable fields for modifying their values. Opening a resource's "Description" row causes an XmHTML widget to display within an XmFrame the documentation for that resource. The XmHTML widget's scrollbars are turned off and the frame is sized to fit the exact length of the resource's description. (Scrolling is provided external to the tree widget.) When more than one "Description" row is open, multiple XmHTML widgets are simultaneously instantiated each displaying a different portion of the document using the same XmHTML layout data structure (which is saved in a cache by the application). Plans call for the XmHTML widget to be embedded at other locations within the application as well. The goal is to make the application fully self-documenting.
