Sports", etc.. drop down's appear... how do you do this? (obviously
these are different drop-downs from the ones yo do in forms with the

Not on my browser (Mozilla Firefox), which does not bode very well for
the portability of the code.

You've probably already done this, but have a look at:

It does not "work" without the "aid" of local script execution which in
fact makes the presentation useless on the www.

The URL you cited is MSIE-specific and does not allow itself to be
navigated in Mozilla, you go figure...

Not a wonder you couldn't find it. This page includes these files:
flash_detect.js, hGlobal.js, global.css, hDTHML.js, paper.css, hPosition.js,
hData.js (which specifies the contents of the (IEonly) dropdown menus),
hObject.js, hp.css, plus a total 121 images. I hope I haven't missed one. I
wouldn't take this site as an example of efficiency.

If you want descent drop-down navigation menus, then try Pure-CSS
menus [1]. If you're really worried about them working in IE, then take
a look at a hybrid CSS/JS menu system [2]. They're not perfect, but
with a little bit of work, by combining all the techniques in the 3
examples below, you can end up with quite a good menu.
