Don't rely on "CSS only solutions" as they cannot read out if the
expanded menu will fit the screen or not. Use a JavaScript/CSS hybrid

CSS only is a plaything, and not fit for production yet. Don't believe the hype.


Now, if a menu has too many options to fit the space it might be that
you also have an IA issue on your hands and not a technical problem.
