Project I: Create Submenus for the Stitch Secondary Pages

Studies have shown that people tend to get lost in most Web sites—they simply have a hard time finding the information they're after. Studies have also shown that most people get on the Web to find specific information. “Who reads studies?” you ask. Well, your boss, of course. In fact, he wants you to come up with some concepts for souping up the navigation on the Stitch homepage. So, you're whisked off to a brainstorming meeting with the other programmers. When it's your turn to suggest an idea, you propose a system of graphical submenus—where users get to preview what's in a section before having to actually go there. Before the sentence is out of your mouth you see your boss's eyes light up: Guess what our next project is going to be? You got it—a new Stitch homepage with a JavaScript-enhanced submenu system.

Since this is a little complicated, we're going to spell out exactly what we want to happen before we start coding. It's tempting to skip this step and just jump into the code, but control yourself. Thinking through the project before you start will always save you time and usually results in a better end product.
