Create a menu that slowly appears without flash

I wish to have a menu bar that sits in an exact position in on the screen, somewhere near the bottom.  On hover I wish for a layer to SLOWLY appear (this is the key) in an exact position on the page.  This layer will contain links etc.
This is often done in Flash, but I would like to stay away from flash and do this via HTML and JavaScript if possible.  Any ideas?

with help of css it possible, exploit the opacity property and add to timer(using javascript) to increase it.

Thanks for the reply - I'll have a play with this tonight and see if I can get something working.  

If you have any examples of using a timer to change a colour that would be helpfull

well for color i have write some code, but here is a example of window closing after 5 seconds

function winClose() {
     myWindow.close()
}

myWindow = window.open("", "tinyWindow", 'width=150, height=110')
myWindow.document.write("This window will close automatically after five seconds. Thanks for your patience")
self.setTimeout('winClose()', 5000)
