Building Site Navigation with the Spry Menu Bar


Efficient and attractive navigation is an important element in every website. The Spry menu bar combines CSS and JavaScript (using Spry, Adobe’s implementation of Ajax) to create a flexible menu with flyout submenus that remains accessible even if JavaScript is turned off. In essence, it’s an unordered list with optional nested lists for submenus. It comes in two versions: horizontal and vertical. Figure 6–1 shows what the horizontal version of the Spry menu bar looks like when integrated into the page built in the previous chapter.
