Plan for Glass Front Drawers

A few months ago I built a closet organizer for my wife. I left space for a dresser and am ready to get started on it.
I have seen pictures of built-in dressers with drawers that have a glass front so that you can see what is inside the drawer. I thought that this was a nice feature and would like to build my drawers this way.
I have looked around and I can't seem to find any plans that show how to build a drawer with a glass front. I was thinking that I could use a shaper with a raised panel bit to make the frame pieces and then use a piece of glass for the panel. The only problem with this approach is that once I put it together, I have no way of replacing the glass if it breaks.
I was wondering if anyone else out there had built drawers with a glass front and could provide me with some hints and tips.
Thanks.

John asks:

Use the same kind of panel retainers you'd use in a glass door. Make the frame & panel, chisel out the back strips, and use the push-in or nail in retainers. I know Rockler sells them. Lee Valley does, too.
Check out the particular retainer before cutting the stiles and rails. Some have a need for an extra groove.
