    Mariposa:

    The javascript to support that navigation bar is about 35K in size. In
    addition you have a huge chunk of dynamic code that is then written to the
    page after it has loaded. The whole system is terribly fiddly, inflexible,
    and slugish. You might consider replacing it with something more amenable
    to easy construction, maintenance and operation.

    or

    To see what I mean about both comments above, go here -

    and see how fast it loads. There's only the one menu on the page, and a
    textarea above it that shows all the code that must be written to each page
    for the menus to work.
