The attached code snippet happens on load of the web page. Can anyone tell me how to convert it to Javascript or C#? Bascially, what I have done is loaded some list items in an array. Then, based on the current page, the HTML is created when the page loads.
// maybe you need to add the directory name(s) too
      $items = array(
          array("link"=>"php.html", "label"=>"PHP scripts"),
          array("link"=>"tut.html", "label"=>"Tutorial"),
          array("link"=>"css.html", "label"=>"CSS template"),
          array("link"=>"code.html", "label"=>"Code examples"));
           
      $menu = '';
      foreach ($items as $val) {
          if  ($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] == $val['link']) {
          $menu .= '<li><span>' .$val['label'].'</span></li>';
 
	  } else {
	  $menu .= '<li><a href="'.$val['link'].'" >'.$val	   ['label'].'</a></li>';
	  }
      }
      echo $menu;

I saw your pages are in .html, so I decided to use javascript to generate the menu.
<script language="javascript">
	//Ver 1.0
	function getFileName(fpath, removeQueryingString, delimiter) {
		if (fpath==null) fpath = window.location.href;
		if (delimiter==null) delimiter = "/";
		var tmp = fpath;
		if (tmp.lastIndexOf("?") > -1) {
			tmp = tmp.substring(0,tmp.lastIndexOf("?"));		
		}
		tmp = tmp.substring(tmp.lastIndexOf(delimiter)+1);
		if (removeQueryingString != null) {
			if (removeQueryingString) {
				var tmpArr = tmp.split("?");
				tmp = tmpArr[0];
			}
		}
		return tmp;
	}
 
	function generateMenu() {
		var arrlink = new Array(3);
		var arrlabel = new Array(3);
		arrlink[0] = "php.html";
		arrlabel[0] = "PHP scripts";
		arrlink[1] = "tut.html";
		arrlabel[1] = "Tutorial";
		arrlink[2] = "css.html";
		arrlabel[2] = "CSS template";
		arrlink[3] = "code.html";
		arrlabel[3] = "Code examples";
		
		var menu = "";
		for (var i=0;i<arrlink.length;i++) {
			if  (getFileName() == arrlink[i]) {
				menu += "<li><span>" + arrlabel[i] + "</span></li>";
			} else {
				menu += "<li><a href='" + arrlink[i] + "'><span>" + arrlabel[i] + "</span></a></li>";
			}
		}
		return menu;
	}
	
	document.write(generateMenu());
</script>

asp.net/c#
<!--asp.net-->
<asp:DropDownList ID="ddl" runat="server" />
 
// C# -- put this in your page_load
if (!IsPostBack)
{
    Dictionary<string, string> items = new Dictionary<string, string>();
    items.Add("php.html", "PHP scripts");
    items.Add("tut.html", "Tutorial");
    items.Add("css.html", "CSS template");
    items.Add("code.html", "Code examples");
 
    foreach (var item in items)
        ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem(item.Value, item.Key));
}

actually, I made that more complicated than I needed to, keep the same asp.net of:

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddl" runat="server" />

and put this in your codebehind:
if(!IsPostBack)
{
    ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem("php.html", "PHP scripts"));
    ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem("tut.html", "Tutorial"));
    ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem("css.html", "CSS template"));
    ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem("code.html", "Code examples"));
}

both of these were awesome examples. However, I found the javascript to render much better.
