It's a shame Apple deprecated Carbon

It's a shame Apple deprecated Carbon before having a real widget set, and it'll be so nice some day when Cocoa is finally something other than a steaming pile of bugs.

(Currently trying to get tabbed windows to display a title that has any resemblance at all to the NSWindowController that is attempting to set the title on the window.title, the window.tab.title, and anything else that looks promising.)

p, img, br, hr, a, sub, sup, tt, i, b, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, cite, em, strong, code, samp, kbd, pre, blockquote, address, ol, dl, ul, dt, dd, li, dir, menu, table, tr, td, th
