    newbie css/js questions


    i'd like to redo my current navbar to utilize the following:
    minimalization of data transfer, reusability, and 'spice up'

    i'm not very familiar with js, going to start digging though.

    basically i have a couple of questions.

    i have a fairly large site that is crawled by google, and i want to ensure that the js navbar will be crawled. is this possible with js to have a dynamically created navbar (and pages for that matter) crawled.

    another question is the file size of typical js navbars. i'm currently sending possibly 13k. i can eliminate the need for some intermediate pages, but is going to a js navbar worth it in terms of data xfer, ability to crawl?

    it doesn't really change the functionality of the site much, but allows for vertial/horizontal expanding menus which is a very nice feature.

    i really hate to use frames, but i'd also prefer if the navbar was not loaded on every page. any thoughts about this? thanks for the input...

    It's my knowledge that whatever shows up on the page after the page has finished loading is what is crawled. So if you have a dynamic external JS, it will be crawled if it appears on the page.
