Hi,

1)
in z3c.menu.simple.menu.GlobalMenuItem and ContextMenuItem the
urlEndings attribute seems not to work properly.
It is ether set by the superclass (zope.viewlet.viewlet.ViewletBase)
which sets arbitrary attributes passed in via zcml, or it is defaulted
to []. In the selected() method there is an iterator:

for urlEnding in self.urlEndings:
        ...

But this way the unicode characters in the unicode string are iterated
over (or the default []). It would be better to split the urlEndings by
whitespaces and iterate over the resulting list.
Here is the diff. With it applied the package works fine for me.

Or am I making a mistake in zcml? (Combination of interfaces in
multi-adapters are configured in that way, too.)

<browser:viewlet
        ...
        urlEndings="viewX.html vievY.html viewZ.html"
        ...
        />


2) There is still another thing about z3c.menu--but it's yust a proposal.
z3c.menu sets the css class of the rendered menu item html snippet to
active-menu-item or inactive-menu-item. The package would be much more
powerfull, if one could decorate the rendered html-snippets with further
css classes,
e.g. <a class="inactive-menu-item sub-menu-item" ...>...</a>
One could configure it this way:

  <viewlet
      name="Contents"
      cssClass="sub-menu-item"
      viewURL="@@contents.html"
        ...
      class="z3c.menu.simple.menu.ContextMenuItem"
        ...
      />

The value of the class attribute is of type cdata-LIST according to the
TRs, at least since HTML 4.01.

Here is the diff for 1) and 2):
