That dropdown/IR menu code

That dropdown/IR menu code looks familiar. Wink

Things come unstuck a bit when you resize the text, ie, elements start to overlap or not expand to contain the content. The inline js on your form elements would be better done unobtrusively and you need to be aware that onclick and onmouseover functions aren't available to everyone (ie people who don't use a mouse).

May I ask why the nav looks familiar?
I really like it, and would love to do something similar.
Perhaps the source and description are available somewhere....?

Having looked at the code

Having looked at the code for the navigation, is it possible to set the over state/active page state as a larger sized Tab? I saw a Photoshop tutorial online a few weeks ago which showed how to draw nice "Web2"-style buttons, and wanted to try and implement something in that vain.

Cheers
Andy

I'm pretty sure Paul O'Brien wrote something about that not long ago. Have a look through his site http://www.pmob.co.uk or through the articles he's written on CSS on http://www.search-this.com.
