    Search-Engine-Friendly CSS Nav Bar

    Dec 5, 2003

    This is a request for CSS assistance (refer to the attached file).

    While researching various techniques associated with horizontal drop-down navagation bars it became evident that the "Sucker Fish" CSS technique may be more search-engine-friendly than pure Javascript and certainly more so than a comparable Flash implementation.

    Unlike the "Sucker Fish" technique however, it is desired to have each navagational item occupy a width only as wide as needed by the associated text in the horizontal navagation bar. Hence, an attempt was made to alter the technique in order to permit variable width navagation items.

    The attached "test.zip" file contains a "test.html" file and an associated "test.css" file. There are at least two problems with this altered version (my fault) of the "Sucker Fish" technique.

    One Problem:
    The navagational items do not "stretch" wide enough to allow some items to exist in a single line as desired in a horizontal navagation bar.

    Another Problem:
    Upon moving the cursor into the "drop-down" portion of the navagation, the options therein do not accept a "click" as desired.

    A bit of help fixing these problems would be greatly appreciated and will be gladly noted in the code associated with the final work. Thank you in advance.
