Ariszlo, your issue with the right cutoff is due because what you call "margin" is actually a behavior due to the group's properties;
It is set as a negative number (-xx) because the group has also set relatw="1", which means it will stretch according to the PARENT CONTAINER'S WIDTH. Relatw="0" makes the width stay fixed.
So, when you set it as "-35" it means it will be 35 pixels SMALLER than the parent container's width but enlarge with it if stretched. the negative number increases because it's used in conjunction with a change in "x", so when the cover is shown, the container moves to the left, and shrinks from the right so it doesn't throw the text out of view.
Also consider that any text field can have a width and height set which doesn't affect directly to the text size, that is controlled by "fontsize". The W and H controls the text-box actually.
I'm a really bad teacher I hope I didn't messed up.. you can see more info here: http://wiki.winamp.com/wiki/XML_GUI_Objects#GuiObject_.28Global_params.29.
(personal view here) Besides this Notifier being flagged as "open source", actually most skins / scripts are sort of Open source. The Winamp skin community was always small, and 90% of new achievements were done by experiments among skinners (official documentation and push forward was always little), so it was common practice to "share progress", specially on MAKI files. If you can see the script's source files (.m) on a skin, it means you can use it for your own skin, always giving proper credit for it of course (basically leaving the header intact, or add your participation if any, and re-share the .m source file).
There are exceptions, mainly those skins made involving some money in it (sponsored skins or paid ones, like Komodo, Nitrous Audio and a couple more SC did some time ago).
