Hi Neal,

Here's something that might interest you, building dynamic
hierarchical menus with Flash. The article and source code are at
builder.com:

Check out some sites like flashkit.com, flashlite.net, flashzone.com
and simply follow the links to other Flash resources.

A "widget" is a generic term for something that represents a typical
interface element. It could be anything, a menu, a button, a list box
-- whatever.

Aaaahhhh! Don't send attachments to any lists -- ever! A good way to
get a thousand plus people pissed-off at you is to send an
attachment. This list probably has a filter on it that takes care of
attachments.
