Consider These Other Patterns

If your navigation bar uses images, make sure that they are FAST-DOWNLOADING IMAGES (L2). Navigation bars that use OBVIOUS LINKS (K10) achieve maximum clarity. Alternatively, by using HTML POWER (L4) to create a background color that is distinct from the body copy background color, and by keeping the navigation bar to the left or the top, you can bend the rules of OBVIOUS LINKS (K10) and remove the underlines or change the link color to something other than blue.

TAB ROWS (K3) are often used for top-level navigation. One advantage of tab rows is that they clearly show customers which category they are currently viewing.
