You can create them just like regular objects in Purr Data, and you can change the visual 
attributes with simple Pd messages.  That makes them much easier to learn.

I may have misunderstood.  I was talking about an object to hold an html5 canvas, which 
is a 2d drawing surface.
I don't see the value in putting a web page inside an object box.
For example-- suppose someone opens one of your patches where you have 
ggee/image centered on the canvas.  If the user has a tiny screen (like an rpi 
touchscreen) they may try to decrease the width of the window in order to 
make it fit the screen.  But in that case your ggee/image is no longer centered-- 
the user would have to make an additional adjustment in edit mode to move the 
ggee/image to the left and manually center it again.
One could poll the window width and use an external to automatically reposition 
the ggee/image.  But that's really hard, esp. compared to css which for all its faults 
handles this issue with elegance and ease.

I do, too.
