[Chameleon] WMSBrowser widget

the WMSBrowser is problematic because it is actually a standalone 
chameleon application as well as a widget.  Or it was written as a 
standalone application, I should say, then converted to a widget.  This 
makes it difficult to refer to the popupcss in the app template because 
it is a template.

What needs to be done is:

1. remove static references to css and replace with [$PopupCSS$]
2. add $oApp->setVar( 'PopupCSS', $_SESSION['PopupCSS'] ); in the 
WMSBrowser.php just before $oApp->CWCExecute();
3. replace static images with <CWC2 Type="Link" linktype="javascript" 
jsfunction=" ... " .... > ... </cwc2> to create correct buttons

The complication here is that the WMSBrowser application page would need 
its own sharedresource for styling the link widgets, which may or may 
not coincide with the app developers main page's sharedresources 
(documentation issue I guess).

Anyway, it can be done and should be done :)  I'll try to get to it.
