If you have several IFRAMES, I’ve done it with a standard list of links. Have links in IFRAME 1 that are targeted to IFRAME2 - then read the _GET data in IFRAME 2 to make a list of links that target IFRAME 3, and so on. With a real drop down you’ll have problems not using javascript - can’t target, no onClick or whatever. I find making a nice IFRAME with a scroll bar and just standard href with target works and uses no javascript.

ok thanx for the advice , how woudl i go about incorperating javascript in with my drop down … would i have to rebuild the whole thing (not that it would take alot of work but to save time never the less)? i know nothing about java lol
