A: You should generate search engine friendly code and install it on yourpage in the beginning of the BODY tag.
To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:
To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.
Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).
Q: I'm having difficulty understanding how to set up css drop down menus. The differences between menuStyles, itemStyles, CSS and CSSText is very unclear, and doesn't seem to be well documented.
Do you have any better documentation or writeup on using this feature?
A: No, unfortunately we don't have additional documentation. You can findall info on our site.
We have several examples of the menus using css.
You should set var cssStyle=1; parameter and then assign your stylesto the items.
var cssSubmenu is a CSS class name for all submenus. You can set, forexample, background color, background image, borders for all submenus.
var cssItem is CSS class names for all items (normal state, mouseoverstate) in the top menu and submenus.
var cssItemText is CSS class names for text of all items (normalstate, mouseover state) in the top menu and submenus.
It's possible to appoint individual CSS styles for separate elements of the menu using individual item styles and individual submenu styles.
Q: The idea is that when you click the button of the menu,
the box that holds the menu links opens like normal, but Instead of having the written links inside the drop down box,
I want to have an item like an image or a search box or some other type of independently running script inside the dhtml xml menu.

Q: How can I place the dhtml pull down menu onto multiple pages using FrontPage 2000? I am not using CSS. Do I need to copy the html into all of the pages, or just place the script into each page?
A: Yes, you should paste the following html code on your pages:
If you don't want to add such code on each page, you can try to useframes, the dhtml pull down menu has a cross-frame mode. Also you can use aserver-side script (php, asp, vb, etc.) to generate html pages fromtemplates on your server.
