Another click action menu to rival the jQuery versions.

Click the top level items with 'down arrows' to display the dropline and change the top level item to indicate the current top level for the dropline. This state will remain on screen even when clicking outside of the menu.

Click the same top level item to close the dropline or click on another top level item to close the current dropline and show the new dropline.

The 'clicked' state of the top level item and the dropline will be animated in Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.

The back button 'history' of selected menu items will not be stored in Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

With this method it is possible to have a specific dropline open on page entry. Try this link to see the Contacts sub line open on page entry.
