New calculator-detail screen

I have implemented a new screen in the Cool Grader calculator to display the calculator detail, as shown below.  This finally makes the initial version 2.0 of Cool Grader "feature complete", since no new major functions are planned for this next product release.

At this point, I am having "beta test" teachers use the app to grade their student assignments.  When this testing phase is done, the app should be ready for publication in the Windows Phone marketplace.
