My apologies, your point is well made. I'm actually an average joe myself
but I thought that the PVII menu was pretty well known on this list.

That is the correct tutorial.

I would be happy to try that, but for an average joe who knows nothing
about PHP, I have no clue where to start with that information. I have
spent a substantial amount of time learning a few things about CSS but
would have to start from scratch on PHP. If you know of an online source
that would address the issue thoroughly I would like to know.
Now for the bad news, in case you haven't been on this list very long, we
are both in imminent danger of extreme wrath because we have completely
left the realm of CSS and we may be severely chastised. Time to saddle up
and ride. Please respond offlist if you have any good resources for
implementing the solution you suggested or if you know of a good PHP list.
