Gene raises an interesting point. Once you've started with this
"subtab/subview stuff, where does it all go?

Will you keep on inventing new words forever?

Plain English -- please!

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

What are you going to say when your deveopers decide to add a third or
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
