Tabs - without using the Tab-control

PROJECT NAME
 	Tab.vbp

ENVIRONMENT
	This is a VB5 project, which will run under Windows 9x.
	No other than basic VB-controls are used.

YOU CAN LEARN
	A little bit about using VB drawing commands
	It's sometimes rewarding not to use controls. Mostly
	because the resulting projects stand on their own, are smaller
	and easier (or faster) to distribute. In addition, you
	keep everything in your own hands. Here in this case it only
	envolves some variables and two routines.
	...
COPYRIGHT
	None. I made the code myself and everybody is free
	to use it.
