Re: [WSG] Help - Mega dropdown menu and SharePoint 2007

Hello Miranda,
Having worked on several Sharepoint 2007 based internet facing websites
myself, the one thing I've learned is that the biggest challenge is to get
Sharepoint to output valid non–table–based HTML. All the rest should be
quite easily solved with CSS. It really depends on how comfortable your
developers are with working with Sharepoint. In my experience there are a
lot of back-end developers doing front-end work that they're not qualified
to do which makes them resort to table based layouts c.

Good luck!

  Hi all,

 Has anyone had any experiencing trying to implement the ‘mega dropdown
 menu’ (see article below) in a SharePoint site?

 I'm going to attempt to do it, but thought anyone who has already been
 through this might have some tips / advice for me.

 Alertbox: Mega Drop-Down Navigation Menus Work Well


 *http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html*http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html

 Summary:

 Big, two-dimensional drop-down panels group navigation options to eliminate
 scrolling and use typography, icons, and tooltips to explain the user's
 choices.

 Cheers
