OpenerView, multiple sub cells and Notebook1Write...

Folk,
Sorry for yet-another-UI-programming question.... (Perhaps I should start
trying to use wolfram's support for these types of things?)

My ultimate goal here is an interactive report that will be played with
Player Pro (and potentially webMathematica in the future). From a document
design perspective, I was thinking about having my sections split using the
OpenerView widget with content embedded under the (layered) opener widgets.

I'm having two problems and I'm not sure if they are bugs, lack of
capability or lack of understanding on my part.

1 - In a normal notebook, I'm attempting to create an OpenerView with
multiple-cells as the second argument.

I'm able to generate sample multi-cell content WITHOUT OpenerView using the
following:

NotebookWrite[InputNotebook[], CellGroupData[
  {
   Cell["test", "Subtitle"],
   ToBoxes@ListPlot[Table[i, {i, 1, 5}]]
   }
  ]
 ]


However, when I try to embed this WITH OpenerView, the "header" gets printed
but the CellGroupData comes out as uninterpreted text:


OpenerView[{"header", CellGroupData[
   {
    Cell["test", "Subtitle"],
    ToBoxes@ListPlot[Table[i, {i, 1, 5}]]
    }
   ]}]


Q: How can multi-cell output be  embedded in OpenerView and properly
interpreted?


2 - When OpenerView is sent to a document via NotebookWrite, the header
portion acts different than in a normal notebook.


OpenerView[{"Text Label", a + b + c}]


This generates an opener with 'a+b+c' as the content and 'Text Label' (no
printed quotes) as the header.


NotebookWrite[InputNotebook[], ToBoxes@OpenerView[{"Text Label", a + b +
c}]]


This generates an opener with 'a+b+c' as the content and "Text Label" (WITH
printed quotes) as the header.


I looks like when using NotebookWrite, the Cell that embeds all of this is
set to "Input" instead of "Output" (from show expression)


Q: How can I get this to be an output cell?

A: looks like I might have my answer for this
one: NotebookWrite[InputNotebook[],

 Cell[BoxData[ToBoxes@OpenerView[{"Text Label", a + b + c}]], "Output"]]


Any other suggestions on how to approach this would be appreciated however.


TIA,


-jbl
