I'm not sure why you think this is a slippery slope:
- I thought Click was also about good defaults and increased productivity.
IMHO it is very important that click apps look as good as possible out-of-the-of-the-box too
(not just after hours of frustrating CSS tunning).

There should be very easy to theme/customize their look, but the default ones should also
look good (80/20 rule?).

E.g. Those custom_buttons from github look very good on all browsers I tried, and there are
some good article links there - worth reading IMHO.
Unfortunately for them (or for Click IMHO), they' use the <button/> tag, and Click is
using the <input type="button"/> . This problem was discussed in other issues, and Click
was not improved to use the <button/> tag because of "compatibility" reasons.

> Please create a DropdownMenu control.
> This would be basically what the actual menu in click-examples does (+more looks).
> Here is a list of various decorations the DropdownMenu could take:

> It would be very helpful if the DropdownMenu would simply allow to choose another decoration,
> e.g. exactly like it's possible with the Table control:
> http://www.avoka.com/click-examples/table/table-styles.htm
> (there are many good styles at that blog page)
> This would save users allot of work - the same way the Table control does.
> I think the Menu control should be than more generic (not the dropdown version that it
is now), and it should be simpler
> to extend. For this it would also require additional properties, mentioned below:
