Another flyout menu using the new float/drop method, this time as a skeleton menu with the path through the flyouts highlighted. This does require one extra element but it does make the menu easier to follow.

As with all menu using this system tabbing works in all browsers that accept keyboard tabbing.

Tested and working in IE5.5, IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox, Opera, Safari(PC) and Google Chrome. Should also work in Mac browsers.

This new menu system takes a little while to get your head around what is happening, but once you understand the principle then you should be able to alter this to suit your requirements. But, as always, I can offer to assist in any changes you may need.
