That is what I am playing around with right now.

I actually was inspired by some stuff I saw by Chipp Walters and Jerry 
Daniels while at the Monterey Rev conference.  You use htmlText along 
with tab stops to have nice graphics along with your text and to store 
data about each line in the field.  The sample I am working on has a 
total of 5 columns but only 2 are visible.  The last 3 store IDs, Type 
and Expanded state.
