<para>The vlc2.0 extends some of these parameters and adds five more parameters to ease up positioning windows within a given screen and widgets within their own containers (layout, panel, ...). As extension, the x, y, width and height can now be given in pixels (default) or in percentage of their container. For instance, x="10" or x="10px" is construed as 10 pixels, and x="10%" is construed as 10% of the width of the screen for windows or their container for widgets.</para>

<para>Relative placement of windows or widget within their respective container(screen for windows, layout or panel for widgets). This placement is given with a geographical qualifier. Possible values are "Center", "North", "NorthWest", ....The skin engine computes the size of the element (from the width and height parameters) then places it at the center or sticks it to a given border depending on the geographical qualifer.</para>

<para>Since VLC 0.8.2. Specify the behaviour of the image when it is resized. Possible values are 'mosaic' (the image is repeated as many times as necessary to reach the wanted dimensions) and 'scale' (the image is actually rescaled). Beware that the 'scale' behaviour is much slower than the 'mosaic' one, so make sure to use it only when it's really needed.</para> <para>Since VLC 0.8.2.

<para>In future VLC 1.2. a third value 'scale2' is available to scale an image, yet preserving its aspect ratio. The image is centered and scaled either heightwise or widthwise to fill up as much area as possible.
