Anything out there that is userfriendly and looks good?
What I do remember is that it was hopelessly slow.. it killed the site stone dead. It was as about as useful as mammaries on a male bovine.
One or two caveats about this particular script -- it is MSIE only, and it uses both document.layers and document.all, neither of which made in into the next set of W3C standards.
So, document.layers is already unsupported by Netscape 6 (this script will fail on that browser) and I have doubts that Explorer 6, due later this year, will support document.all -- something to consider before building such a menu into a site you are developing today.
This is very bad news, but I guess we have to start looking for alternatives now.
Anyway, here's the Netscape page [sites.netscape.net] with at least some helpful advice.
One of the common ways these two properties have been used is simply to do browser detection. The rest of the functioning code may not use them at all, and that's good. All we need to do is create a more standards compliant sniffer in those cases.
