Javascript location

Hi,

I want to handle a menu (highlighting item when user click on the item) with javascript.
can I put the javascript code just before the html code of the menu ?

I'm asking this because the menu is in a separate jsp file.

**** menu_top.jsp ****

<div id="menu_top">
      <div>
            Manage:
            <ul>
                        <li><a href="/users">Users</a></li>
                        <li ><a href="Setup?do=menu_collections">Collections</a></li>
                        <li><a href="/indexes">Mode Test</a></li>
                        <li><a href="Setup?do=menu_options">Options</a></li>
            </ul>
      </div>
      <hr class="separator"/>
</div>


**** collections.jsp (including the menu) ****

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<HTML>
<HEAD>

<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<META name="GENERATOR" content="IBM WebSphere Studio">

<LINK href="theme/footer.css"  rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<TITLE>Fortis Crawler Admin</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY id="body">

      <jsp:include page="incl/header.jsp"/>
      <jsp:include page="incl/menu_top.jsp"/>
      <jsp:include page="incl/menu_left_index.jsp"/>
   [...]

yes, javascript can be set anyware in the html document if you are declaring function. However, if it is not a function, the code will be executed straight away.
