Q: As I have stated before, your Deluxe-Menu is very very good.
But there is allways room for improvement.
Is there any chance to see support for the following in Deluxe-Menu:
Open Link in new window
Open Link in new tab

.... is there any possibility to make a custom context menu that show above a menuitem and that show when right clicking on the menuitem.
If not possible to implement using the native browser context menu, then I belive it should be possible to do it using my workaround how to.....
Just a thought....
Any suggestions on how I can make the workaround work, or if maybe you could support the workaround in some way in future releases of Deluxe-Menu?

What we want is, when a user enters our site from the index (home) page then clicks on a link and the sub-page opens, for the dhtml menu tree to be open to the section the user is in and viewing. We also DO NOT want the browser to save the state of the menu, since that is inconsistent with where the user is in the site. Note: we do not use the Menu on the home page, is this a problem?
Per your tech support email, I've added the expand code, which works going from the home page to sub-pages. However, it interferes with navigating to other sub-pages once your in the site.

You mentioned the expand code has to be entered on every page....is that so in this instance and if so, that's a maintenance nightmare - does a better way exist for this type of menu?
