Attached is an image of something I need to piece together.

The top nav is constant - with a bar color that extends the width of the wrapper.  The buttons act to bring up a sub nav whose DIV is invisible until a button is rolled over - and also extends the width of the wrapper.

How would I go about setting the sub nav div visible/invisible?  Would it require a javascript onEnter type command - or is there a better way to handle it?

Thanks!
