Hi Trish,

I see, e.g. if you expand the 'anatomical compartment' on the left 
legend the sub-terms are displayed underneath which is good. And I can 
click on each one and the detail for it appears. I guess I expected the 
sub-terms (why do you call them 'Sub Class'?) listed on the 'anatomical 
compartment' detail pane on the right to be links to the detail of each 
of the sub-terms. Might be good to add those links to make navigation 
through the ontology more user-friendly.
Also, I noted that the detail page entries are moving around when 
clicking to another detail page. E.g. when on the 'anatomical 
compartment' detail page and then I click on 'anterior compartment' the 
second column with the values for 'ID, Comment, Xref, etc.' move farther 
to the right. It would be nice to keep the formatting to minimize 
distraction to the eye.

Just some suggestions,
