Horizontal Menu - I need some help (VWD Express)

Hi

From an example supplied with Visual Web Developer Express 2005,
I am trying to build a "horizontal menu" with drop down links.

In the example below I have added: url="mouse.aspx?/">
to <siteMapNode title="Mouse"

This works - i.e. If I click Products/Hardware/Mouse - mouse.aspx opens.

I have two questions;

1) Is this acceptable practise - I mean it might work for me now,
but will it be corrupted somewhere down the line?

2) Could someone explain why url="Default.aspx"
is included in this path: <siteMapNode title="Hardware"
url="Default.aspx?node=hardware"?

I'm trying to get my head around all this!!

Many thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Stephen
