RE: override getPeer()

Do I override getPeer()?

No, I just use it and the sun.awt.DrawingSurface class to get the native window pointer. The native interface code is about 1000 lines, but it will get slightly larger, soon. The Java code is about 1000 lines of code too, but it will get larger when I get the nsIStreamObserver working. That will allow the Java code to intercept URLs, and if necessary retarget them, stop them, etc.
