How to improve the visuals of Access applications

I'm interested in what limitations you have experienced in trying to make your Access application look more modern. What are the limitations of Access forms and reports that keep you from creating applications that look like Web 2.0 apps? Some of the things I was thinking about include:

  • MouseIn and MouseOut events
  • The ability to control style colors of hyperlinks
  • The color of the┬áselected item in┬álist and combo boxes
  • Easier way to build dropdown menus in forms

It isn't clear how much of this list would actually make it into the product--I would just like to compile a great pick list for the planning process.
