This is real a neat feature Vinny - nice work.
I like the fact that now I can collapse it again once I view the comment.

Do you have any code that you can send me or direct me to better understand 
how this is being done.
I see immediate use for this in some of my projects.

This was a big problem, I didn't quite use the solution you suggested
(I couldn't quite get it to work), but I did (if I may say so) a
ingenous little workaround.

OK, changed the code around to account for this.  Hopefully it will
work with Opera now.

Thanks for all the suggestions Niels.  Anyone else see any problems
