Michael -

I think you've done some great work here.  There's a lot of information there but it's good / helpful information.  The use of a scrollable window is clever, and keeps the subcategory and article listings from being too far-removed from the header.  I like what you've done there.  In between working on populating Hungary with Magda, I"ve been working on Africa - and if your idea here meets with general approval I think we should apply the same thing to that region.

There is also some code for a collapsable window. I have been unable to get it to work on wikitree.(posted on G2G and sandbox)  It may be nicer if we can get it to work. Option 3 is to create a link to the bottom of the page. Just trying to accommidate all concerns.  I have other pages where the data displayed needs to be there for the majority of wikitreers. Its the only way to make certain the right sub-category is used for their ancestor. (Ships and military regiments)
Thanks, Michael
 
Collapsable text uses templates, which is why is doesn't work right now on WikiTree. The templates haven't been created here. I've tried fooling around with them a bit, but it's hard to just copy them from Wikipedia because they're so interdependent! You can't just copy one, because it'll reference a bunch of others.

I did make this simple template: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:Succession_box


Looking for accceptable solutions before continuing on my major projects (Ships/Military)
