Well, you still should be proud for solving the problem :) And be proud to be able to accept
honest criticism so you can learn, some people can't do that.

Well you could adjust a simple CSS list to do it, possibly. Head over to listamatic and study up
on some of their horizontal lists with rollovers:


These are all CSS only, no JS. Really, all you'd have to do is put your extra links in each LI
item, and let the CSS take care of the rest. You'd have much cleaner code too, and you could get
away from the absolute positioning, which is not a good idea IMO.
