Information

A simple definition list menu styled using a 'no content' span to give the appearance of an indication light above each menu item.

The text and spans are in ems so the menu will stay in shape when resized.

Hacks added so that it works in IE5.01 and IE5.5

This menu replaced one of my early attempts that wasn't to my liking. I think that this is an improvement.
