Thank you very much for your detailed answer and description. That helps
a lot.

I think amone my requirements, one of them is particularly difficult.
That is this point I mensioned in my original message:

>* allows a lot of menu items (e.g. when there are 60 menu items, the user
>don't need to buy a 30'inch tall display to be able to select the last one.
>Again, simply <select> fits in this case for it's scrolling ability)

I think most of the js menus I tested failed to deal, e.g. 50 menu
items. examples are udm and yadm. Check the screenshot:

I am going to go on searching for proper menu for my case, or perhaps I
myself already had a bad design to allow such thing happen (50 menu
items). If you already know any menu system that fits, please let me
know. Otherwise I start from the easiest-to-modify one and patch it.

To make the context clear: I am looking for a way to let the user easily
select one from 300 employees to see his or her records. Some
departments do have more then 50 employees. Perhaps I should stop
thinking about any menu, I should use a pop-up search form.
