    Most sites like that server their content through a content management
    system. Many smaller sites do the same these days.

    You can programatically do what you want through a variety of technologies:
    XSSI (see [url]http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/html/97/39/index1a.html[/url] for
    sample), Javascript (not ideal) or a server side scrpting language like ASP
    or PHP.

    I uses some basic ASP on some sites I do that use a simple if/then statement
    to determine whether or not a navigational element should be on or off
    depending on the page that is loaded.

    you could do this with css. zeldman's new book "designing with web
    standards" has a discussion of it. or study his site's code for the buttons
    in the navbar of zeldman.com, and the linked and embedded styles being
    declared in the head. -- the linked stylesheet is the global default style
    for the buttons. the embedded style toggles the active page's button to the
    "on" state.

    generate their tabs through programming. By this I mean you click on a tab
    and the tab image changes for that specific page (different color). And then
    you have your submenu which displays additional links and they happen to be
    images as well. I'm sure the developers created a different color and image
    look for the entire navigation bar, but is it possible to put the images
    into a script to where you don't have to insert a tab that's considered to
    be "on" or look as if it was the "over state" if you were to created a new
    HTML doent. I guess another example would be [url]http://www.amazon.com[/url]. They
    have their navigation set up to where it's displays the user's name inside
    one of the tabs as an image - that has to do with some kind of programming.
