Article on Building “Normal” Websites with GWT

Here’s an interesting article about building websites with GWT.  By ‘normal’ this author is talking about integrating GWT components into existing HTML pages, or making widgets available to non technical users.  This is in contrast to what seems like the sweet spot of GWT–building rich web applications.  (I’ve talked about these two use cases before.)  I was impressed by the author’s assessment of the GWT widget landscape and the machinations to create a vertical TabPanel and the follow up about internationalization.  I haven’t done any i18n with GWT, but the fact that you can’t change locale after load time certainly seems like a large flaw.
