Hi,
I am using sitemap source for top navigation of my website.
Two things i need clarification on:
1- Is it ok(in terms of SEO) to use jquery for styling the sitemap based navigation
2- If so, can someone provide a link where i can take a look at the samples please?
I have struggled enough for making my .NET 2.0 sitemap based navigation website look good but i am not satisfied myself.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

And the suggestions will be based on what?  Just out of thin air without seeing the site is not likely to be of much value.  Post a link so we can see what you have.

As for seo... The spiders do not see the styling and for the most part don't care.  Think about the spiders a a blind person using a screen reader because it is basically the same technology.  If your navigation is disorganized and confused then the spider, the blind person and most other users will consider the site junk.  No really cares how good it looks if it does not give them what they are looking for and easy navigation.

he C grade would indicate some level of dissatisfaction with the response.  The problem is you think you can just post a vague request; ignore; request and responses, and by magic positive things happen.  

I suggest that you could use some help learning to use help sites.  Without a change in your approach you are not going to get much help.
