Hi all,
At the risk of sounding uninformed:

Why does not the right bottom part of yahoo messenger
have a fillet?

Is this a yahoo/web standard. I haven't been able to
find any reference to the same.

What is the logic? The window can be expanded both
ways, so whys the fillet missing on one end only?

Any clues?

Thanks and Regards

I'd say partly as an aethetic choice, and partly because the skinning engine
can support it. Note it isn't there if you turn off skinning (choose *
Classic* in the *Messenger–>Change Skin…* dialog).

You can also "fix" it, or tweak the skin however you want. Just play around
with the files in C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Shared\Graphics\ (the default skin
is named *Indigo*).
