How to split and join windows in blender 2.5

When using blender it is useful to split and join windows, it helps us feel comfortable with what we are working with. Blender 2.5 has a new interface therefore spiting and joining is slightly different. 

How to split windows
In the top corner of any window you see a small shaded edge, when you hover over this you get a small cross, when this cross appears click and drag in the direction you want to split the window. Dragging down splits the window horizontal and dragging across splits it vertical.

Have a play around and you will get the hang of it.

How to join windows
Now that you have split some windows you will be wanting to join them at some point, this is pretty simple.
The example below shows a 3d window split in the middle, I am going to join this together. As the same as above, drag the edge of the window you want to join but drag it up into the window instead of away. 

Thanks for reading, I hope you learnt something.
