How to center elements in an Android LinearLayout (horizontally)

I was just working on centering some components in an Android LinearLayout and came upon this helpful advice:

android:gravity takes care of its children,
android:layout_gravity takes care of itself

So, in my case, where I wanted to center two buttons horizontally in a LinearLayout, I used android:gravity="center".

A Java JScrollBar example

I took a little time today to add some new features to my "JustWrite" text editor, and one of the features I'm experimenting with is an animation similar to the current horizontal scrolling area shown at the top of Apple's Mac web page. When you first hit that page the scrolling area is offset a little bit, and then in an animation the scrollbar moves more to the center of the scrolling display area.
