The one situation that most often forces me to use HTML5 method rather than the DATATABLE macro (thereby loosing the significant feature of ajax loading) is that I need to use a field other than TopicTitle to display for the link to the topic. It would be a nice enhancement to have a "Special column name" such as "Title" accompanied by a parameter called "title" to specify the field to display with a link to the topic.

Thinking a bit further (after looking a bit at the code), perhaps a even simpler approach would be to add a parameter called title which defaults to TopicTitle - but which allows selecting a different field to display when using the TopicTitle "special column name."
