Similar to my prervious menu, this one has the same overrun feature to the left, right and bottom of each sub level menu where the mouse can be moved off the menu by a small amount in each direction and the menu will still stay on screen. It also has a 'left direction' dropdown sub level so that the last drop down sub levels will stay on screen.

I have used fixed widths with this menu, mainly to reduce the number of images required. It can be done with variable widths but will require a 'sliding doors' approach to make the background images fit the varying widths..

This works in Internet Explorer IE5.5, IE6, IE7 Firefox, Opera etc.

The images used are

Top level tabs The top level tabs image.

First sub level top The first sub level top image.

First sub level bottom The first sub level bottom image.

First sub level top left The first sub level top left image.

Second sub level top The second sub level top.

Second sub level bottom The second sub level bottom.

Third sub level top The third sub level top.

Third sub level bottom The third sub level bottom.
