That is neat but if I type enough enough expressions are printed in the 
upper window and I try to scroll down after about half a second the 
scrollbar will reset to the top rendering the system mostly unuseable 
after inputting about 7 expressions. Firefox I briefly looked 
at the javascript you used but I'm not sure what the issue is.
