The Frameplus Online tool is great for analyzing different 
glazings.  You have the option of different spacers, argon or air 
fill, different thermal breaks in the aluminum curtainwall or window 
framing.  It offers curtain wall, fixed window, and 
casement/awning.  The report gives centre of glass U, overall Uvalue, 
etc.  The bottom of the report provides the equest performance values.
