Project IV: Using CSS/DHTML with JavaScript for Navigation

It's a good thing the last project was nice and easy, because the next idea the boss has come up with is going to not only use pretty much all of the techniques that we've acquired, but push us into new and exciting territory. Up until now, we've only used CSS/DHTML to specify the font attributes for our site. Well, that's about to change. The boss was recently at an industry meeting and was talking to one of our competitors about Web sites; the competitor was all aglow with the new navigation menus that had been added to their site. So, needless to say, the boss ran home and checked them out and of course now wants you to implement them on the Shelley site.

How the menus work is that when the user rolls over a main navigation image, a small menu pops up that lists the secondary level categories available for that section. After a little bit of research, you've figured out that they are using CSS/DHTML to achieve this feat. Before we can go much further, however, we need a little deeper understanding of CSS/DHTML.
