Disable combo box menu item?

Hi Judy,

Like Jacque, I see the combo box menu being simple text as a possible  
explanation for not being able to disable items in it. Dividers, too,  
cannot be created, probably for the same reason.

Your default button problem seems to be a bug caused by either  
Revolution or Mac OS X 10.3. In Revolution 2.7.1 on Tiger, disabled  
default buttons look the same as normal buttons.
