Create Swing Layouts as Easy as HTML Tables

For some time I have been fasinated that it seems easier to create HTML Forms using Tables then it is to create similar UI using Swing Layout Managers.
Because of this many years ago I wrote an HTML TableLayout for Swing. Basically you define your layout using HTML tables, test it out in a browser and then use that html file to generate a layout in Swing at Runtime.
I find it easier to use then other layout systems plus very lightweight. This layout was available as part of the Xito Dialog project but I have now made it available all by itself.
As with all Xito code it is licensed under Apache 2.0 license.
