Sure, but that doesn't mean it's appropriate.  A menu system done in 
php will have the advantage of being, from the browsers point of 
view, plain html mostly.  The disadvantage is that every change to 
that menu will have to be done server-side, meaning a page reload 
even if that's the only content that changes on the page.

A menu system done in javascript won't require a reload but will, as 
Miguel points out, potentially break on systems where javascript is 
unavailable for whatever reason.

In the end you should always be coding pages to degrade 'gracefully'. 
 Even if you use a javascript navigation system there should still be 
a working menu system if javascript is not available.
