I think it has been mentioned before. But we should keep stylessheets, about
just that. Stylesheets. Being able to define behaviour, should be the realm
of scripting. Not style. But that's just my view. It's perfectly possible to
create a nice looking html page, that would behave like a tree view. And add
it to elements, either with XBL in Moz or behaviours in IE. And once you
have this component, you're good to go.
