Developing new plugins:
Plugin provides information to the calling application in an html-like format which can include references to icons stored in the plugin's database. The advantage of this method is that it allows the calling application to render the info, so the style will be completely compatibile. The disadvantage is a loss of control to the plugin, and only one line of display info.
Plugin is responsible for drawing it's info in a provided rectangle. Advantage of this plugin style is that the plugin is completely in control and can use standard palm drawing functions. The disadvantage is that although information on style is passed by the calling app - it is harder to make sure that the plugin observes style conventions.
