hi everyone,

i've a nav dilemna that needs solving. i am currently working with a top nav that has drop down menus. the drop downs have been coded using javascript.

take a look at the base image here: http://funky.groovebaby.com/nav.gif

it's currently coded as an include like so:

<DIV id="Layer1" style="position:absolute; top:68px; left:0px; width:0px; height:115px; z-index:1"><IMG src="images/nav_lay.gif" width="1000" height="29"></DIV><p><script src="assets/nav_logic.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

the problem is that the background lines need to stretch 100%, and the buttons and correlating menus need to not stretch, but still line up evenly between the background lines.

i'm a css newb and getting quite frustrated with the attempt actually. would prefer a css/javascript solution but  i'm wondering if i should throw in the towel and just do the nav in flash? or maybe another solution?

any insight would be helpful.
