I’ll tell you a little secret, I’d rather be in the Research Triangle Park area than Rockville, MD. You see, I’m just North (ern U.S.) enough that the early winter storms such as the one that’s going to visit us tonight doesn’t come down as fluffy white snow flakes. No, the stuff we get comes down in the convenient consistency of a 7-11 Slurpee®. This in turn makes navigating about town a slippery and often dangerous endeavour. Which is why I’ve already abandoned my car in the middle of I-270 … I wanted to get a good spot … but I digress.
I believe the navigation solution Rich is referring to is the another tool on the same website entitled “The Amazing Rolloverer.” A nifty little utility to generate some even niftier CSS rollovers that work with a majority of browsers.
But there’s more! Being an original Baltimoron (pronounced baldamorun) myself, I can’t resist offering a bit more help for my ‘Charm City’ homies in the form of a link to Accessify.com’s List-o-matic. This cool online tool walks you through the steps to turn unordered lists (<ul><li>…) into very fast, very accessible, easy to manage text-based rollover menus that deprecate nicely with older browsers.
Now if we could just convince the that villian Irsay to return the Colts name and uniform to Baltimore, all will be right with the Universe.
