Hello,

I am looking to create a hover drop-menu much like the "All Departments" tab on the http://www.ikea.com/us/en/ navigation bar.  I would like to replicate all aspects, including the arrow that goes from point right to down on hover.  Can someone please provide me an example on how to acheive this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  The solution needs to work cross-browser and be as accessible as possible.

Thanks!

It uses Flash.  It is a fairly simple Flash script, but it would still require some knowledge of the program to create it.  

There are other types of "drop-down" menus that can be created using just DHTML (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript), but it wouldn't be as styled as the one on the IKEA page.

Hi mrables,

The navigation menu itself is not flash-based... just the movie underneath the navigation.  Can you please point me in the direction of a "real world" example of a similar CSS/JavaScript based solution?  Thanks.
