lol Chris, the ironic thing about all this is that i have your Beginning JavaScript with DOM book in front of me right now (yes i bought it!)<br>I'm flipping through the Ajax section, ironically Chapter 8, trying to find what I need lol<br>When I say "accessibility is not a concern" what I mean is that I have the accessibility part of it figured out, and whether I use CSS or DOM is up in the air.<br>Thanks for the links, I'll check them out and hopefully it works out<br>Tim<br>By the way, sorry if this has tags or no spacing, Hotmail is sort of lame and sent my email without any spaces.<br>> Date: Fri, 13 Oct 2006 15:23:00 +0100> From: codepo8 at gmail.com> To: thelist at lists.evolt.org> Subject: Re: [thelist] Javascript/CSS/Database solution?> > > Hey list,I've been asked to create a drop down menu set for my company and wanted your advice on a few things.First off, should I do the dropdowns as suckerfish or using DOM, or both?  What have people found to be most efficient?  Accessibility isn't a concern since if they had JavaScript disabled they would just have to click the menu button to see the sub menu for that area.Also, I'd like to find a way in which to make the content inside the dropdowns dynamic - is there a way to use the DOM to pull data from other web pages within the site (I'm not certain I have access to any database information in this case)?   Is this more of an Ajax functionality, or am I missing the boat all together :)Anyway, appreciate your feedback!www.timpalac.comIM me at TymArtist> > makesurenevertouseanywhitespaceasitcouldhappenthatpeoplemaybeabletohelpyouorunderstandwhatyouareonabout.> > "Accessibility is not a concern" is never a good starting point, I'm> sorry to say.> > In case you want a basic menu that you extend with other elements only> when and if JavaScript is available take a look at these examples:> > http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/menu/> http://www.beginningjavascript.com/Chapter8/index.html (optional AJAX menu)> > > > -- > Chris Heilmann> Book: http://www.beginningjavascript.com> Blog: http://www.wait-till-i.com> Writing: http://icant.co.uk/> -- > > * * Please support the community that supports you.  * *> http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/> > For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester > and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org > Workers of the Web, evolt !
