Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

This is a follow up to my post a couple of days ago on Tabbed tables in HTML in which I talk about how our Midas Rich Text LSX renders tabbed tables in HTML with CSS and JavaScript, or will once our latest version comes out.

We are constantly working to find better ways to represent Notes rich text, especially as we are more and more likely to render a form along with the document.  Domino handles sections reasonably well if you have a live Domino server, but since each open or close of a section requires that the page be re-sent by Domino, this is not an adequate solution for customers moving data out of Notes to SQL Server, or to stand alone pages, or even to Domino websites where the form should not be re-submitted.  Therefore, we are working on ways to represent sections using CSS and JavaScript, with results such as that below.

So, the question is, would you want to use this approach, or do you have a better one?  Does it work in your browser?  Is this less compelling than the tabbed table approach, or better as it is simpler?  Let me know what you think.  Warning, this is not as finished as the tabbed tables, so I will keep replacing the code s it gets closer.
