> Has "ANYBODY" actually tried to design and use these features ??????

I thought you needed some sort of fancy terminal with a mouse to use
them?  Or presumably a PC with CA could do it; but when you work in a
software house, you've got to design (at least to some extent) for the
lowest common denominator.  What's the point in putting flash stuff on
the screen if the customers can't use it?  How would a radio button
appear on a conventional terminal?  And how would you press it?

Mind you, I know you can use menu bars and drop-down menus with a
conventional terminal, because you could switch Office to run like that.
And quite nice it was too.

Martin.
