is there a way to create one of those mega menus (columns of links instead of straight down) without using any of the drop-down scripts out there? I guess I'm looking for a source/resource for the CSS behind it. Looking to do something like this at the bottom of a site (a 'mega footer' if you will).
You'll want to look up suckerfish menu articles.
