Just thought I'd post a comment (and a question) - might as well give to receive, eh?

This "snazzy menu" looks good in Firefox on PC (haven't looked in IE or anything yet) - but comparing Mac OSX to what I'm seeing on my PC? Firefox looks the same, Safari 2.0 looks the same and ::gasp:: IE 5.2? Holy crap - looks exactly the same and functions perfectly.

What a wonderful thing - and you didn't even try! ;)

Now, for my question. I'd love to use this menu. However, I'm having an issue: I need a drop shadow on the "hover" and "selected" state. I know you don't *need* images, but I'm doing a site for someone who *wants* images. When the tab is selected, she wants the tab to have a drop shadow - so it looks like it's overlapping the images/menu tabs to the left and right.

Got any ideas on how I could accomplish that?

Shelley, shadows would be extremely difficult to add to this menu. I think that you would be better off using images for the normal and hover states. You could use something like the hover in the zero-dollar ads page. I may even look into this as another menu demonstration ;o)

re: Snazzy menus
You said you need feedback from Mac users, so here is one :-)
Works on Safari 1.3.2 and Firefox 1.5. Haven't tested IE.

Uh, sorry for being an idiot. I just found that this info is already on the page :-(

Stu: have you ever thought of creating demo form widgets for your site? It would interesting to see your creativity in action.

Hi Stu-

Great Site!

Just a quick question,
I notice when I am in IE and I click from page to page there is a slight flicker in certain parts of the page, usually the header.
However in FF it is nice and smooth.
Any thoughts?

DAve, you could check your IE Temporary Internet Files setting to see if it is set to every visit to page, or automatically.

When looking at your snazzy menu:

I remembered reading on the layout page introduction: "I hope to find layouts that are a bit more adventurous."

How about basing layouts off of your menus? An example I would love to see is in concept very simple and clean, but I think very difficult to actually make. Like a notebook:

Is that even doable? The text direction isn't that important.

Jonas, I did something a couple of years ago that went like this:

This could easily be developed into what you want.
