Collapsing List's in FrontPage 98

Does this feature work in FrontPage98?? I have messed with it for a while
now and cant see how it possibly could from the javascript it inserts. I
built an <UL> with 3 <LI> 's then set the "enable collapsing list" checkbox
in the properties, then ran it, nothing but the sound of my mouse clicking
away...whats up with that?? Any help is always appreciated......

Collapsing is for nested lists, as in the following (be sure you enable that option after you've created the nesting list, it didn't stick when I did that first testing this). In IE 4 view this, and click on Item 1, it will open and close the sub list with Item 1a.
