The "inputtext - clickable" workarounds and special tricks cause some bugs:
Steps to reproduce:
(at least in Firefox2, IE6)
- go to "examples/components/style_example.lzx?lzr=dhtml"
- expand the frosty-window, so it's big enough to cover the inputtext on the right hand side
- hover over the inputtext, or alternatively focus the inputtext by tab-key
- the inputtext's text will become visible
from time to time, the whole application did not receive any mouse-clicks anymore,
the only way to resurrect the app, was to change focus by tab-key until I've focused the inputtext,
after the inputtext gained focus, the app was again able to receive mouse-events.
