A simple jQuery Accordion with unlimited nesting
<h1>A Cool Accordion</h1>
<p>You could simply toggle the .show class (if display: block is uncommented in the CSS) in JavaScript, but you'll lose the animation.</p>
<ul class="accordion">
<li>
<a class="toggle" href="javascript:void(0);">Item 1</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>Option 1</li>
<li>Option 2</li>
<li>Option 3</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>
<a class="toggle" href="javascript:void(0);">Item 2</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>Option 1</li>
<li>Option 2</li>
<li>Option 3</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>
<a class="toggle" href="javascript:void(0);">Item 3</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>
<a href="#" class="toggle">Open Inner</a>
<div class="inner">
Any<br>Element<br>Can<br>Be<br>Here...
</div>
</li>
<li>
<a href="#" class="toggle">Open Inner #2</a>
<div class="inner">Auto closes too...</div>
</li>
<li>Option 3</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>
<a class="toggle" href="javascript:void(0);">Item 4</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>
<a href="#" class="toggle">Technically any number of nested elems</a>
<ul class="inner">
<li>
<a href="#" class="toggle">Again...</a>
<div class="inner">Interesting stuff... As long as the inner element has inner as one of its classes then it will be toggled.</div>
</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>Option 2</li>
<li>Option 3</li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
$('.toggle').click(function(e) {
e.preventDefault();
var $this = $(this);
if ($this.next().hasClass('show')) {
$this.next().removeClass('show');
$this.next().slideUp(350);

$this.parent().parent().find('li .inner').slideUp(350);
$this.next().toggleClass('show');
$this.next().slideToggle(350);

Looks pretty slick. I've played with a bit and like it's minimalist approach.
