One nice thing about a text-based drop down menu is that it is easier for search engines to track. Another nice thing is that folks who use assistive technology can “read” the text based menus much better than graphics-based navigation.
I had been looking for a resource that would help me build a drop down menu for a long time, when I ran into Dynamic Drive DHTML Scripts:
The web site walks you through the process of adding (and possibly changing) the code to create the drop down menu.
