[thelist] Expandable CSS Menus without JavaScript

Why on earth would using javascript effect SEO?

All the elements are on the page. You're just using javascript to 
show/hide elements to the browser. The search engine spider won't parse 
the code so it won't effect your SEO.

The sensible approach would be to have all your js in an external file 
and use the DOM as a trigger (rather than events in the actual page). 
If you're really paranoid you could even use a robots.txt file to 
exclude spiders from your scripts.
