This class is based on Prototype. The code is inspired by the powerful script.aculo.us library. You can even use all script.aculo.us effects to show and hide windows if you include effects.js file , but it's not mandatory.
It has been tested on Safari, Camino, Firefox and IE6, Opera looks fine.

How to Use
To create a window, you just have to instanciate a Window object with some optional parameters, set innerHTML of the window main content and call show() or showCenter() function. Check out the samples tab with more sample codes
Hello world !!"); win.showCenter();
PWC-OS SampleThere is a lot of way to use PWC, modal dialogs, tooltips. I decided to create a light WebOS using PWC. It's a good example if you want to start to use it as a window manager.
Full code is included in the distrib (about only 50 lines of code!!).
I will post new features on my PWC section of my blog.

BooksOnly for French readers!
If you use Prototype and script.aculo.us (and you do, since you are interested in PWC), I recommend this excellent book by Christophe Porteneuve. Not only does it provide in-depth coverage of Prototype and script.aculo.us, it also talks about CSS/XHTML/RSS/REST, and more. All code samples can be downloaded and give you a deep understanding of those frameworks.
English readers, Wait, Christophe is writing a book for Pragmatics Programmers, it will be available soon, stay tuned :)
