I agree 100% that adding HTML5 as an Orbiter option is a GREAT thing. I've been playing with that for years, as you know with my iOrbiter. And with Radu's JSON plugin the two missing things I was unable to achieve are now doable.
The main point I tried to make is: Yes, HTML5 design is much easier done than the original Orbiter work. But it still is not something that one can easily do on a single weekend, if one doesn't have any background in HTML "coding".
On the other hand, if anyone wants to get HTML code for an existing Orbiter UI1 screen, feel free to utilize my little script that was build to do just that. It is part of my iOrbiter adventure, and can be accessed after svn checking out iOrbiter (see wiki for details) with http://dcerouter/iOrbiter/structure.php?screen=1
And with that, I shall stop interfering with the goal of this thread.
