Who agreed that having the pull-downs cover up some of the tabs on the 
rows was all right? The Apple Computer pull down menu covers up a 
large chunk of tabs below. Yikes!

attitude.

Yes, but worse, can you imagine being stuck using this nav without a 
search function?


Now, just to steal your thread Ted, will the fans of drop down menus 
please visit this site and actually try to use it. It is a pretty good 
example of what to avoid in a main navigation system.



If you don't want to visit it here is my internal dialogue during the 
first 10 seconds visiting this site.


Ever so slightly Amazon-esque pre the 'see all 32' tab, but with less 
categories. OK so far, what is Ted talking about?


3 levels of tabs? Hmm, anyone who's used Word should feel right at 
home. Hopefully they don't reorder the tabs like word when you click 
one. OK so far.


[moves mouse to tab]
Oh, how inspired! Tabs and dropdowns... Up to four levels to boot! 
Itch? My brain is melting! Where's the search?


To be fair, if you turn off js and just use the tabs and the left hand 
navigation, the site navigation is pretty good. But dropdowns? Just say 
no.


kind regards
Terrence Wood.

Hi Ted,
Wow! Graphic tabs + flyout menu altogether!
