How to implement a drop dow menu?

Hello, friends,

I was asked to implement a .aspx page with drop down menus. When a mouse
pointer moves over a menu bar, a drop down list containing sub-menus will
show up. Thus a user may select a sub-menu from the list.

(It is something like the menu bars on this page:

What is the best (simple and easy to maintain) approach to do this? Any
reference paper, sample source code? Help please...

Thanks.

The new menu control built into ASP.NET 2.0 is fairly capable.
If you're still stuck with ASP.NET 1.x, then you might find one of these
free menu controls to be just what the doctor ordered:

Depending on if your menu's need to be dynamic or not... and...not meaning to
sound anti-MS here, but wouldn't Javascript, or even DHTML be better at doing
roll-over drop down menus... Just a thought.
