Hi Folks,
Here is the list of widely recognized control types, chunked as per John's proposal. I also added and chucked the form fields. I added context as per Jason's request and some extra clarity. Ironically the only items that did not have the context of the "user" or "site" were the definitions I had copied from autocomplete.


I removed the items John wanted to remove other that "mode" and "tools" which i tagged.
Enjoy....
