3rd paragraph from the bottom

The last sentence of this paragraph says "SWT" when it means "AWT". The current text reads: "Although the same comment may be made about other Java-component-based toolkits, such as SWT and SWING, it's even more true of the SWT." It should read: "Although the same comment may be made about other Java-component-based toolkits, such as AWT and SWING, it's even more true of the SWT."
