new .cty demo js/css

I think it is great that fogcreek publishes more demo's. A few notes for improvement:
- publish all demos at some citydesk/demo location on the fogcreek site.
- include notes on how to use / how it works in the .cty
- add a little bit more to it than just a .css switch.

The real cool thing about Citydesk and javascript is that you can combine CityScript and Javascript. I use it to create javascript arrays with references to citydesk articles and headlines and stuff.

And an other example was published in this forum long time ago, someone made a simple counter in javascript to show how many items/articles where in a table.

But then, with so many experienced CityDeskers around and Joels love for contests like topcoders.com... why not having some contest for the best citydesk demo? Possibly in a few categories of citydesk usage... ?

The idea behind having a very simple demo (styleswitch.cty) was to show users (and off course potential users) very plainly how they can use CityDesk in their own projects.

Of course, managing a sophisticated website is the ultimate goal, but showing people how to do very specific things is a good first step.

This particular demo was also partially in response to Armin Hanisch's posting from August 28 where he asked about including CSS files within .cty projects.
