    The Dreamweaver built-in show popup menu behavior has a lot of issues
    with a lot of things. I would advise you to abandon them. There are a
    lot of popups that work better and require MUCH less code to
    implement. See the following for a couple of tutorials about how to
    create them:

    Thanks for your quick response. I went through the tutorial for: [url]http://projectseven.com/tutorials/auto_hide/index.htm[/url] and it seems to functionally do what I want; however, it does not provide the visual punch I am looking for. Is there a way to incorporate a java rollover? Thanks again. -Eric H

    Eric:

    Assuming you are wanting a 'javascript' rollover, sure - you can adapt those
    easy methods to any kind of menu.

    I have done so on many of the sites listed in my portfolio, including -

    They're only layers. You can style them however you want. In addition
    to the links Murray posted, you can see a similar technique on my
    personal site at http://apptools.com.
