Thanks.  I'm doing something similar, but I'll look at that as it
works (slowly) in IE6.

I'm using this as a learning exercise, and I have a few odd things I
can't figure out:

Only on Firefox at this point -- none work in IE, but haven't really
looked at that yet.


    - This works ok (in firefox) but I'm not clear why I need this
    at the end of my css file:

        #sitemenu li.popup li {
            margin-left: 30px;

    without it the bullets in the submenu are not in the background.


    - in-menu expansion.  Not sure the changing menu size will work.

    - IE 6 doesn't detect the hover.

Not css, but javascript in case anyone's interested.  My javascript
skills are, well, still in the development stage.


    - Javascript popup.  My question here is why is there a "menuout"
    event triggered when moving between links on the popup menu.
    The onmouseout should be on the <div>.   Maybe I don't understand
    when the events are fired.


    - Here I have a design that floats the content in the center
    of the page.  The thing to see here is that my mouse coordinates
    are off by the amount of whitespace on the left of the screen.
    You might need to make the screen wide to notice.

    I'm using Event.pointerX to fetch the event's location.
