menu help please

P: n/a
I have found this nice little menu.
http://www.bigbuddha.be/test/menu.html

When i click on "folknieuws" there is only 1 item, so i dont need it to
expand just open a page in an another frame. So items with only 1 same item
need to be clickable directly, no 2 clicks. If this makes any sence.
It's a usability thing ;)

any one? i'm not that much of a javascript expert.

thank you very much.

If you *really* mean to be interested in usability, then there is
another concern that I would fix first.

Your menu only appears if Javascript is enabled. As all pages, it
should work without Javascript as well, e.g., by making *all* top
level entries links to appropriate pages. Then the submenus will just
be shortcuts, but not essential to navigation.

There is no easy fix. The menu distinguishes between items and menu entries,
and you want something at the level of menu entries that acts as an item.

It is possible to change, but I would recommend getting a different
menu to begin with, one that is functional without Javascript. No
reason in patching up something that is broken by design.

Oke, good arguments.
Maybe you can suggest a simmilar menu that has your approval? ;)
