I don't see a post by you which appears to be intended for this thread ...
Wait -- is this it?

If so, could you explain what you mean about the numbering being left-justified?
Also, I know that I use A, B, C, D as section labels in the example website
( but otherwise I don't follow you. I apologize if this
is not the passage you were referring to.

Your comments about accessibility in the other thread are important, too. With
the tree control, I went out of my way to make sure pages could be bookmarked
and that the documentation was viewable with text-only browsers. Are there other
accessibility problems you see?
