    Tabularity of Menus

    File System popups look to be tabular (each table, a window):

    Code:
    +---------------------------+
    | icon | itemName | subMenu |
    +---------------------------+
    
    ^ headings are inferred...
    
    
    +----------------------+
    |   *  |   blah   |    |
    |   *  |   blah   |    |
    |   *  |   blah   |    +----------------------+
    |   *  |   blah   | >> |   *  |   blah   |    |
    +----------------------|   *  |   blah   |    |
                           |   *  |   blah   | >> |
                           |   *  |   blah   |    |
                           |   *  |   blah   |    |
                           +----------------------+
    Directory tree lists too... each level appears to be a table of object data.

    What else could they be (in HTML)?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hmm well since it is data I would use a table, but you could also use some unordered lists I guess.

    You could use the list-item for the bullet, and a background-image for the arrow.

    Go take a look at listapart.

    I was thinking more along the lines of the best 'data structure' for mapping between both types o' menu...

    Yeah, that's probably it (a table, that is).
