I'm trying to accomplish the same navigation that you can see on this site. I'm not sure where to start or what to search in Google. I'm assuming it can be done with JavaScript. Any suggestions? Thanks

CSSplay is a nice web site with some good CSS to help you create menus. I keep it bookmarked for inspiration. There's a lot to look through and I didn't take the time to try and find a specific one for this effect, but it's worth a look see.

Edit: The Multi-Level Dropline category looks like the type you want.

Dude, just google it. Type drop down navigation menu tips or tricks or hack. I'm sure a lot of pages will appear. I guess those sites can explain it better to you step-by-stey with images rather than explaining each process here in the forum.. :)

yui

YUI has some menu stuff so does http://script.aculo.us/. but thats some pretty easy javascript hide/show div and image stuff.

something like onMouseOver="javascript:show(this)"

function show(this) {
// this set to new image
// this.child ie the menu bar hide the old version show the new one
}

jQuery

I agree with iPodRocker. Check out jQuery. There are tons of different jQuery menu tools out there - and they are easy to implement. There's also lots of support for jQuery - both online and a few books. Good luck!
