_______________________________________________________________________________
Now here is what i wanted...!!

1. In the menus there are parent->child->childchilds. WHen i click on the parent the link should turn black with an underline and then should show all the children in black color without any underline.
2. when i click on a child it should be black by itself but with an underline.
3. When i click on the child child, the  child child should be red now.



thank you.
