Example 5 looks similar to what you are looking for (I think).

I can see what you want, but even yahoo does not offer that on its tab library. You will need to implement it. I put something together based on this site:
http://phrogz.net/JS/Tabtastic/index.html

It should get you started. Save it as is and test it. I'll be back later.
