Well, there isn't much to see (if anything) of the system tray itself,
because it "only" embeds other applications' notifications.
But if you insist:
with some text added.
Well, you cannot see any big stuff there, as I said. More interesting is
the notification area specification on ;)

The purpose of the system tray is to allow applications to brag to the
user without having their main window in the foreground ;)
Thats the interesting part, because you'd be able to see if you got new
mail, got an instant message, your disk space is running low, someone
portscanned you, someone connected to your ftp/whatever etc on first
