View: Multi-Row Project View

This view displays project information in a two row format.

It employs the use of the sharecol=true tag to combine multiple fields under the same column header.
Additionally, it utilizes place holder columns that hold an HTML line break tag (<br>) that forces the description to reside below the project name, for example.
