Default Incantation Magic web app

There is a beta of my Incantation Magic spell creator web app currently available. I think this is feature complete, but could use some feedback on layout and usability.

The application is here:

Leave me feedback on this thread.

I had offered to help... then life got in the way. Sorry about that. This is pretty awesome.

I noticed that when you get past 3d, your calculator doesn't allow for dice like 4d or 4d+1, only -1 and +2. I recognize that the book gets a bit wooden about this, but there is a clear line of progression that it seems reasonable to follow from the chart to get 4d and 4d+1 before getting to 4d+2.

Looks interesting, but the "add modifier" story needs improvement. Right now, it requires a few superfluous interactions:

- When opening the selector dialog, you pratically always have to expand the combobox. As this contains just a few values, an expanded multiselect widget woudl be better.
- Once you add the modifier, you want to enter values, white requires expanding the section. As not needing to do that is the exception, the default should be an expanded section.
