This Picture is to show you several things.
First the Buddy List can display Groups. This is set in the View Menu (Show Groups). You can choose to also show those that are Off-line as a separate group below to On-Line Buddies.
Secondly the Group Header Bars can be collapsed as some are in this one.
If you choose to Show Off-LIne Buddies then the numbers on the right will be the Number of On-line / Number of Off-line Buddies.
If you choose to use the Show Off-line as Group option then the Numbers in the On-line groups will dsplay the number On-Line and the last, now Off-Line Group, will display the total that are Off Line.
Another option is to not use the Show Groups option and any collapsed Group title bar will only display the numbers of those On-Line.
Changed Thirdly is to note the Names of the Groups I have. They are not the default ones. The action in iChat 3 when Adding New Group is to display them alphabetically in the List. This could be tweaked with the use of those ASCII Code characters that come before the numbers (which in fact come before "a"). This makes "* Tests" (star, space, word) come before "*Family" (star, word). Mine still use this format but in fact the Title Bars are now drag-able within the list (I suggest collapsing them all first so you do not have to pass all the names in one section).
The same thing can be acheived if you use the Plus Button at the bottom of the Buddy List and select Edit Groups where you can drag the list into the Order you want (and correct Spelling mistakes).
This in turn means that any New Buddy Group is added to the Bottom of the List no matter what letter it starts with and you have to put it in place.
