PortMaster 3 with ComOS 3.5
Portmaster 2
PortMaster 2 with ComOS 3.7

Access note: This example was created using style sheet commands to indent the text of the list to approximate how OPTGROUP will be displayed when it is supported. OPTGROUP performs some visual formatting to make it easier to distinguish between related and differing items in a list. Some screen readers may also provide auditory cues to help users distinguish between groups. OPTGROUP allows you to label your divisions with descriptive text to further help structure your information.
