    popup menus

    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.

    the site in question is http://www.rosslerpapier.com/newsite

    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?

    what does everyone here reccommend?

    javascript is probably the most common way of doing this. However, I think you can get this done with a show/hide on div tags, just positioning them absolute. I tend to stay away from these types of menus, but sometimes you have to do what the customer wants
