OS 9 - window .alert() uses bad width, chrome, title, icon, and font
It would seem to me that the variable width would be desirable since the alert box is variable on Windows. In fact, I've seen many cases were web developers insert \n to set the appropriate line breaks. I'm not sure what the maximum width is in windows, but I know from looking at this with Netscape 4.x that it's more than the mac. I'm just pointing out that this is a portability issue. I'd think you'd want to allow the same amount of text space in the alert box as on Windows. The rest of the bug is probably still valid, but since I almost never use a Mac, I don't know how much this would matter to Mac users.
ok, so the deal is we don't look like a regular mac app. Ooops. At any rate, the first thing I would want fixed is native widgets. Marking p4, minor, and future.
