    Hi RobAu,
    Love this simple plugin.

    Have you consider putting your plugin to google code or some public source version system? so that people can collaborate on this plugin.

    Thanks, Saved a lot of time.
    is there a way that the resizeable affects just two header on either side of resizing line?
    if there is, it would be helpful a lot to me
