Try visiting computer arts www.computerarts.co.uk.  They have a pretty easy
to use, very efficient drop drop code available for download.  It's
straightforward, easy to customise, works in 4+ browsers and in a few days
time I'll have a NS6 modification working!!!

Only thing it doesn't have is any form of hierarchy, it's one dropdown only
although I suppose it could be adapted fairly easily, you really only
applying the same script to another layer.

Mail me if you want any more info on it.

hiya again!

ok, marketing now wants dhtml menus. i have explained to them that these are
*heavy.* they want them anyway.

our webmaster likes the dhtml menus from web reference, because they are
well-documented, widely used, and free. see

however, these require a minimum 38K download(!) just for all the scripts,
not to mention the in-page stuff. i have corporate clients with T1 lines,
but still. . .

i have looked at the wonderful fireworks 4 menus, which are just(!) 24k to
download. however, there are several bugs. . .such as every different menu
must have its own 24k file. . .<sigh>

i have made a simple menu in DW4 that works in all browsers and is 20k, just
by hiding and showing <div>s. nope, must have dhtml.

arguing them out of this won't work, and they hate flash. can anyone give me
the URL of a *light* dhtml menu? or am i just being a sissy? is 38k not a
problem, really??
