I've been working through JQuery: From Novice to Ninja (book site; I accessed it through O'Reilly's Safari; we have a subscription in the office). Anyhow, I hit one bit on JQuery widgets that was unclear in the book, did a quick search, and found this wonderful page on how to create them (what distinguishes a widget is that the code is self-contained, which means it can be safely run on any web page). Of course I'd like to run them just anywhere - on desktops, on mobiles, etc. but I don't think I can - I sent a Twitter request to the world for help on this, but I think widgets always have to have containers.
