Here's a diagram that I've been maintaining to help me visualise border layout containment.

Thanks Herm, that looks great! If you create any more, please post them. Maybe we can construct some kind of blog post out of them.

I reckon this kind of stuff is part of the doc or at least some 'best practice'/resources kind of sticky. Another way is to promote/elevate some stickies etc into the doc as they mature.

The documentation has pros: it's formal, vetted, organised and it is assumed that api users have read it. The cons though are: you (Jack) need to maintain it yourself, publishing takes time.

Does the layout scheme diagramed work without a "center" region? I had the understanding that you had to have a "center" region in order for the and "east" or "west" region to make sense (in regards to resizing/collapsing)

I think you're correct. I have updated the diagram in it's new location here http://yui-ext.com/manual/borderlayout:nested_layouts in the EXT manual.
