Disabling items in an option-style button

Two thoughts here:

In the menu types were this is supported, you don't need to put the 
bracket before the dash. The dash itself is used as a special character 
to indicate a dividing line rather than an extra item. The dash on it's 
own will give you a dividing line or space.

I have tested all the different types of menu buttons and this 
technique works on all except the combo box. Under OS X, it certainly 
works with an option menu.
