XML Character-set: One key on your typepad and you create a nifty-drop-down menu.

Drop-down menus: Intergrating Java, C++, HTML and XML into a single character.

Ref See how the link for Dawn and Drew Show expands and contracts? That's slick.

And it would be nice if there were simple tools that would convert this code to something that anyone could simply post with on any platform.

Something that worked across any host, regardless whether the host "liked" Java, C++, HTML, DHTML, XTHML, or XML.

Think moblogger. They have a limited amount of time. It would be nice if there was a one-click tool whereby mobloggers could simply grab the code, and drop it onto their text.

Something you don't have to save "special codes for" on your harddrive. Rather, a code that is universally recognized as one of those "Oh, yeah...we can make that: Just like we make the letter X. You type, "X" on your keyboard ... and it appears."

I don't have to write the ASCII code to make an "X", just an X. -- so why not have a similar feature of typing, permitting the end user to type a universal-one-character code for a drop-down menu.

Boom: Right there: , not just the image, but the features that go along with it: The linked sub-text, the different colored-font menus, indentation options, and ability to size and color fonts with embedded links, and room to add other codes with one-click entry.

No fuss. No muss. It would save time. And it would mean the mobloggers could scroll through more content faster: Have the long blogs crunched easily.

And if you have a neat idea for coding, you won't have to write the code. You can just click the options and make more than a demo: The actual embedded presentation into your blog, with colors. With just a couple of clicks.

Aren't you glad you thought of it?
