Miscellaneous Web Page Tips and Tricks

support for making plain vanilla nested UL lists into "expanding outlines" that
hide and reveal the contents of each node, an orrery that shows the position and
movements of the inner planets and their satellites, and a dynamic calendar.
Only a few of the WebTips work on anything other than Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0
(or later versions). Either MSIE is the only browser that offers the functionality
needed or making Netscape work reliabily in doing an advanced funtion would be extremely difficult.
For example, the equivalent of the "expanding outlines" functionality in NS 4.0 takes about
ten times as much code, and tends to bomb the browser. We can only hope that the 5.0 browsers
are not so completely incompatible as the 4.0s.
