Do a quick google search for "DHTML menu".
That should get you started.

Well that site is made in Flash, which is another thing entirely. But there are ways that you can make menus like that using a mixture of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Here's one that you might like:



Make a CSS file with the following in it :

--->You Can Edit: background: color: font-family: font-weight: text-decoration: cursor:
.mainDiv
{
  width:160px;
}
.topItem
{
  width:160px;
  height:22px;
  cursor:pointer;
  background: #467BF2;
  text-decoration: none;
  color: white; 
  font-weight:bold;
  font-family:"GOTHIC";
 
}


.dropMenu
{
  background:#D9D9D9;
  border-top:1px solid #467BF2;
  border-left:1px solid #92B1F8;
  border-right:1px solid #92B1F8;
  border-bottom:1px solid #92B1F8;
}

.subMenu
{
   display:none;
}
.subItem
{
   padding-left:5px;
   cursor:pointer;
   font-weight:bold;
   text-decoration:none;
   color:black;
}

.subItem a
{
   text-decoration:none;
   color:black;
}

.subItemOver
{
   cursor:pointer;
   color:blue;
   text-decoration:underline;
   font-weight:bold;
   padding-left:5px;
}

.subItemOver  a
{
   color:blue;
}


.drop
{
   border-left:1px solid black;
   border-right:1px solid black;	
}




Make a .js file with the following (I did not write this, I suck at JScript):

Put this into the HEAD section of your page:


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="sddm.css" />



And finally, put this HTML where you want the menu to appear:


--->You Can Edit: The contents of the DIVs, and the anchors.
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="menu.js"></script>

<!--------Start Menu---------->
<div class="mainDiv" state="0">
<div class="topItem" classOut="topItem" classOver="topItemOver" onMouseOver="Init(this);" > Demo Menu 1</div>		
<div class="dropMenu" >
	<div class="subMenu" state="0">
		<span class="subItem" classOut="subItem" classOver="subItemOver"><a href="http://www.dynamicdrive.com">Dynamic Drive</a></span><BR />

	</div>
</div>
</div>

<!--------End Menu---------->

<!--------Start Menu---------->
<div class="mainDiv" state="0">
<div class="topItem" classOut="topItem" classOver="topItemOver" onMouseOver="Init(this)" > Demo Menu 3</div>

the same way you make an html file (through wordpad/notepad), except you don't make the extension .html or .html, but you make the extension .js, for example menu.js. same as for the css, save as menu.css. actually, as you see from
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="sddm.css" />
you must save the .css file as sddm.css, OR you can change the href="" to whatever you want your file name to be.
