I meant to say this as well. Expanding the ability to 'fold' and  
'unfold' from just lists to spans, paragraphs, divs, even images  
(think thumbnails vs. full sized) would be a useful ability.

Be sure that this isn't ONLY tied to the original suggestion of 'tree- 
lists', but allow the originating notion to work easily with this  
concept, please.

Isn't some part of the CSSwg working on collapsing outlines and such?  
Do they have suggestions for descriptive names?
