I've also had a lot of success with Xavier's DHTML Menu Builder - one nice
feature is that if you attach your menus to images, the menus can stay with
the images, even if the images move around the page. Also, you can edit the
code that DMB produces so you can tailor it to your needs - including
removing code for features you aren't using and making the file size a
little lighter or creating your own plugins to extend or change
functionality. Finally, the support from Xavier is first-rate - he spent a
lot of his personal time working with me to customize DMB to produce code
that will automatically hide form elements when using NS4.
