Damon,

in Version 7 there is the very useful Control[] wrapper. I find it
useful for interface layout, because you can use controls e.g. in a Grid:

Manipulate[
 Plot[Sqrt[2]/(RTT*Sqrt[p]), {p, .001, .1},
  PlotRange -> {{0, .1}, {0, 150}}],
 Grid[{{Control[{{RTT, .1, "round trip time"}, .03, .25}],
    Dynamic[NumberForm[RTT, {3, 4}]], "ms"}}]]


Regards,
Yves
