The root should have a different icon to the left of the text, and no
+/- symbols (although they could be present if necessary, normally a
click would expand/contract the root.) When I look at a YUI tree with
a single depth 1 node, the dotted line extending above the + gives the
impression we are using a workaround. It just doesn't look right.
It may be that my expectations are at fault and that such precision is
not the norm in web application development. I would hope that is not
Thanks for your reply and any other light you can shed on these fine
