HTML/CSS Menus - loading pages in Divs

There are several menus on the Listamatic site - for example this Horizontal Menu . The links for the menu items are in the form
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <li><a href="#">Item five</a></li>
My page is laid out with CSS/Divs. So how do I get the menu items to load an htm page in a Div? I looked, but did not find, a tutorial on this - if you know of one pls let me know. I may switch to a Dynamic Ajax Content menu - which includes menu/DIV links that work. But I would like to understand how the menu templates I find - which often use the code above - are made to load a htm page in a Div. --- thanks

The only way to load a div with content that way is with js, but the content is already there, just hidden and later exposed. Another way is to use an iframe, not a div. But iframes are frames so you need to be aware of issues with using frames, such as difficulty to bookmark them.

Do you have an idea how the menu templates are meant to be used? I am interested in using them, and will study/learn what I need to know... but I am not sure what I need to study. Is the idea with these menu templates that you need to create your own JS for them?

Thanks again.
