    Nice menu in Explorer and Netscape...


    I want to use a very nice menu in the new version of my company's website.
    I would prefer not to use frames as I want search engines to view the pages
    correctly, so I decided to use FP include to manage the menu (I don't like
    the idea to change 100 pages every time I add a link to the menu...)
    With IE it's all right.
    When I try to preview the page in Netscape Navigator, it simply doesn't appear
    on the screen....
    Someone told me to use layers. I don't know how exactly... and if it really
    could help to solve the problem.

    Thanks in advance,
    :-) Angie

    You may want to check out overlib:

    http://www.bosrup.com/web/overlib/

    There you get free software that provides on-page pop-ups at the client side.
    The pop-up box can be used as a menus too.

    No windows or frames - just a pop-up over any area or link.
    The pop-up can contain your sub-menu items.

    If you havn't already checked out Mike Hall's site, you
    should visit

    www.brainjar.com

    for other super cool professional effects.

    At thr risk of some controversy I feel I should add another
    avenue to investigate.

    You can get a really cool nice menu by layering images with
    names on them for a menu. It is all cross-browser and can
    be client-sided. It will also avoid the "Pesky Forms" issue
    discussed in recent posts here.

    The controversial part is that the award-winning site which
    highlights this technique is

    www.drlaura.com

    That site's menu graphics are dyn-o-mite. If you view source you may 'get
    some general helpful ideas'.

    So as to be even-handed in all matters of controversy, I will also list an
    anti-laura site.

    www.stopdrlaura.com

    (It doesn't have especially cool menus but who's counting)
