    2929What is so great about dropdown menus? If IE6 might have problems, what about users with old computers or very compact ones (pocket pcs)? --sitarane (Julien)

    3133Hmm. I also think JS for dropdowns is no good idea in general. While pure CSS may work from a security point of view, I'd expect trouble with old and mobile browsers. (If we should care about IE6 at all - I won't - could be a topic elsewhere) --midsch

    3337The idea is to have both js and css. This way, people with older browser that don't support CSS dropdowns still have the javascript, while people with js deactivated on newer browsers still have the CSS. Only old browser + javascript deactivated will suffer from not seeing the beautiful dropdown, and for these we provide slower alternative navigation paths. This is the usual way these dropdowns are used on other sites. -- lemonhead
     
    3842 * http://rusrestaurant.com/tests/menu/8a.html or http://rusrestaurant.com/tests/menu/8.html work with or without javascript enabled, and they still should work in IE6 !

     44About pocket pcs, you have a point. I really don't know how well a css or javascript dropdown works there, so it is important to have the alternative navigation working. On the other hand, it is also important not to waste too much space, especially on these small-screen devices!
