This param specifies the data for the applet. Each content item is specified by four fields separated by a semicolon. 
  • The first field is a number and it refers to the hierarchy level of the tree. The tail gets a number that is one greater than its head. 
  • The second field is the content item string. Use a comma to display the content item in two lines.
  • The third field refers to the start and finish dates for the project. Month names must be in English with three characters and the first one capitalized. Please make sure that each word of this field is separated from the other by a blank space especially when the field gets distributed in two lines. Please also note that the the applet can display dates in the range 1997 thru 2096.
