i am working on building a website for a client and they are requesting some kind of (animated) popup submenu or acordion style submenus for some of their buttons and i have been wrestling with the best way to do this without killing the look of my design.
they would like it so that when you mouse over the products button you will get a popup menu (like the ones found at http://www.sunnyview.org ) with some links to product pages.
i have tossed around a few different ideas:
1) i thought about using the same script used for www.sunnyview.org but that script is fairly tedious to work with when i have to add buttons or menus.
2) i tried using the popmenumagic script from project seven (http://www.projectseven.com/products.../pmm/index.htm ) but that is not really working out for this site.
3) i thought about using flash but i woudl have to have a plain HTML version for users who dont have the flash plugin and plus wouldn't that seriously hurt my chances of getting listed w/ search engines if my primary navigation is flash based?
is there any alternate method i am not thinking of or that i am unaware of?
