If you are using a form, for sure google will not spider those pages, considering that no other pages are linking to those pages.
Buddhu what a great, easily understood reply. I wish all contributors could be as clear as you.
It depends what sort of drop down menu you mean. A drop down form element would not be much use!
I use layer menus on all of the sites I work on and they work really well in search engines.
Sorry but I am not familair with all of these terms. Will the links within the drop down menu created from this tool be counted in google?
I always wonder if using a drop-down menu made of hidden layers is a smart move. One might assume that search engines may not understand that the hidden layers are a part of a menu, and treat them as hidden text. And of course, hidden text is a big no-no.

As long as the "hidden text" serves a real purpose for the user (i.e. a menu of valid, visible links), then I can't see any harm in them.
In my opinion, there is little or no risk at all using this method.
