I'm an experienced PHP/JavaScript developer, and of all the CC tools out there, yours seems to look the most promising. Is there any chance of collaboration on this? I'd love to further the project, and I have some ideas I can suggest too.

Hey.  Thanks for approving my membership.  I tried to join to comment on this thread about the card creator.  I think we ended up having a conversation on MTG Salvation already.

Still interested in the source to have a go at adding hybrid and as insurance in case your version disappears but very happy with the program!

Thanks!

Added flip and split frames. Flip and split cards: use ;; to separate each half in corresponding fields. (e.g. Fire;;Ice) For an example, see Fire;;Ice and Budoka Gardener;;Dokai, Weaver of Life

Added Planeswalker frames.
