You have multiple layers of tabs and views. They are all tabs and all views,
regardless of how many levels down they are.

What are you going to say when your deveopers decide to add a third or fourth
level of views? If I see trialware instructing me to click on a
"subsubsubview," I'm gojng to uninstall it immediately. I might even run a
registry cleaner and defrag my hard drive just to make sure it's completely
