Sneak Peek: More on Cascading Menus

Hi all...I'm working on a new idea and wanted to give you a sneak peek. It's pretty cool stuff (IMHO). I was frustrated by the fact that although the idea for cascading menus in Notes using Actions was neat, there wasn't a lot of formatting you could do. So...I went back to the drawing board and thought..."Wait a minute: Notes is like an onion...it has layers" :-)

Playing around last night, I came up with the following functionality. This is just rough right now, but it shows you a cascading menu in the Notes client. With just a small change, this could become a vertical drop down menu too! So...what do you think? Worth writing an article on?

P.S. Extra special thanks to Nathan who inspired me to revisit the idea of using layers with this great post! These ideas are just an extension of his most excellent work...
