Cobalt first started life as a Runnable style, however R2.6 features a new Scripted style engine which allows for the creation of amazingly sophisticated styles using only a text editor and some simple VB Script.

Techie bit: Scripted styles have access to a revised version of the melon graphics.library which is not only specially designed for use by scripts, but also includes many new features (such as clipping regions) which make creating fantastic styles a breeze.  Scripted styles also use the V42 API model so the script has access to everything that was passed in the original {notify} request.
