Container Icon Contents Indicator

      Disclosed is a method to indicate whether or not an icon
container has information in it.

      The icon container will indicate that it contains information
when the icon and its label change to bright green.  This indicator
is consistent with user's expectations that green represents a "good"
or "go" condition, gets the user's attention, is simple to implement,
and takes up no additional computer screen space.
