DHTML Menus and Navigation  
How users get around your site is important. They want to be able to find what they want and fast. But that doesn't mean it has to be dull. Presentation is often tied closely to functionality, modeling your navigation to what a user is familiar with can make it easier to use, and more likely to be used.

Of course, just making it cool can draw a user in as well. As long as it is not so alien as to leave them helpless.

Navigation Bar

A flexible, space-saving navigation bar with drop-down menus, just like the one used throughout this site.

Pop-Up Menus

Creates OS-like menus that can have any number of items and optional submenus. Each menu's appearance can be individually configured and multiple menu sets can be defined. Menus can be made static or opened in response to events like mouseovers or clicks.

Site Archive

This is how the site used to look. Most of the pages in this Windows desktop layout have dummy content but you can still play with the navigation. An overview of the design and coding is provided.
