several requests - headers, ai styles

I'll make a list here, since I think it will be a bit easier to read. Most of these requests originally came from [url=[/url]another post[/url] of mine, where it was suggested that I ask for them in this forum.

  • Headers
    - Allow cursor changes over headers that are links. Currently, the cursor does not change to the hand icon; it stays on a text cursor.
    - Allow headers to have their own menu style to enable more customization instead of just a few color choices. For example, in the aI for the header, allow a style=headerStyle; property.
    ~ The effect I was trying to achieve can be seen on lavasoft, though they use graphics for their headers and I would rather use styling effects like on regular links.
  • Regular Styling
    All of the above! :)
    - Being able to change the cursor to crosshairs, for example, could show the user that this link is different. A sample scenario might be that this link opens in a new window.
    - Letting each menu item have a style declared in the aI would allow "headers" to be created easily without having to use type=header and therefor giving up an absurdly high amount of styling options. Updating these "headers" would be much easier, since you wouldn't have to change aI styling for each and every one of your "headers". (I can't emphasize enough that this would save frustration, at least on my end! lol)
    - Having a maximum width property for vertical menus, either in pixels or percent. I'm told that itemwidth will set the width for me (even though on menu properties it says only for horizontal), but I'd prefer a maximum width over a solid set width. My menu can be smaller, but it just can't be bigger.

Well that's all I can think of/remember. Thanks for considering my requests. :)
