Dhtml Menu Advise

Please can someone recommend a freeware code sample of a dhtml menu that does the following.

I want to have two horizontal frames, the top one will have the menu in, but will be too shallow for the menu to expand. The menu will need to float over the bottom frame and be able to target the bottom frame for the links.

Thanks
Andy

You can look at these for some drop down menus, but the requirement to go across frame borders, make this an extremely complex questions if you expect it to be cross browser and cross-version compatible.

Someone may have the time necessary to do the kind of coding to do this but it is a lot of work, and if the lower frame is loading pages from other sites it is going to be impossible for most browsers because you have to have scripting on every page that will be in either frame.

The only thing you could do to make something like this cross browser, is to put the main menu in the top frame, but the submenus in the bottom frame and then just show or hide the submenus depending on what you chose....but I can't see why you would want to float over frames...there should be other ways....

The link is not working because the site is down.  If you go to www.bratta.com it states that the site is down.  Just try again later.

Ok...

I believe you...but still...I cannot imagine that the menu will fall over the frame as andy_booth required....you will need to fake such a thing...I do know the bratta menus and they do not have a menu that falls over frames...

Sorry, maybe I didn't explain myself very well.

I wanted to be able to pop the menu up in a different frame. Which is exactly what this does.
