In the end we don't actually have any problems with our installation. It can
steam up when not in use and the jets are on (which makes it quite humid in
there) but for normal baths or when in use there just isn't an issue.

I did quite a bit of digging on heated glass but couldn't find anyone to supply
me. I even tried to blag samples for an 'engineering development prototype' from
manufacturers around the world ;)

I wanted it to look neat (no 'stuck on' elements or visible wires). I also
considered running a hairdryer remotely (with ducting) to provide a warm
airflow. There is a light above the screen which I replaced with a CFL - that
and the screen provide enough warmth to keep it clear.

BTW, this was entirely my wife's idea - I thought it was a bit daft - got to
admit I was totally wrong.

cc'ed the list 'cos it's vaguely Myth related...
