Yep, that was the next thing I was going to try-- well, I would
have used different markup, but the idea was the same. Very nice! I
probably wouldn't have made it so attractive in my first pass.
What's even cooler is that going from a layout like mine to a layout
like Porter's would require nothing more than an alternate
stylesheet-- the markup would stay the same.
Hmmm... actually, as I look at your markup, Porter, I think you're
on to something there. Using lists to create the submenus makes a
LOT more sense that the mess of DIVs I've been wrangling.
Speaking of which, for those who are interested, I've updated the
css/edge menus demo to show two-level nested menus. The markup gets
a lot more convoluted a lot more quickly-- thus the aforementioned
mess o' DIVs-- but it isn't too bad. I plan to make it a lot
prettier (and more useful) before the weekend, and get it public
before Sunday. I think that once I take a cue from Porter and
convert the markup for these menus to lists, the markup will simplify
and become a lot more backwards-compatible all at once. Oh, too
