  Window - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Later, various types of windows were invented that allowed light but not weather to pass into a building: mullioned glass windows, which joined multiple small pieces of glass with leading, paper windows, flattened pieces of translucent animal horn, and plates of thinly sliced marble.
Mullioned glass windows were the windows of choice among European well-to-do, whereas paper windows were economical and widely used in ancient China and Japan.
In England, glass became common in the windows of ordinary homes only in the early 17th century whereas windows made up of panes of flattened animal horn were used as early as the 14th century in Northern Britain.

 window
In general, wood windows, which consist of the window sash inside of a wooden frame, similar to a door, will require a rough opening that is two inches wider and two inches higher than the size of the window.
Windows play a prominent part of the appearance of any style of architecture, and one of the most distinctive features of the traditional style home is a divided lite window — real or simulated.
True divided lite windows are manufactured using essentially the same process as of the windows of yesteryear — a solid wood frame is broken up into squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds, or other regular geometric shapes using interlocking wood strips, and individual panes of glass are fit into the openings.

Window A occludes window B if both are mapped, if A is higher in the global stacking order, and if the rectangle defined by the outside edges of A intersects the rectangle defined by the outside edges of B. Note the distinction between occludes and obscures.
A pixel is an N-bit value, where N is the number of bit planes used in a particular window or pixmap (that is, is the depth of the window or pixmap).
