Please can some people advise me if this design will work OK

It uses a Dynamic Drive drop down menu (but my Q isnt about the script)...

1) As the only means of navigation, will this menu be sufficient or will I get cross-browser probs... I ask, because I havent seen a site that ONLY uses that, usually its a second navigation method

2) is there an error...? IE shows "Done, but with errors on page" in bottom left. I've copied the script exactly but still get that message. Seems to display/work OK tho.

BTW none of the links exist so they wont work OK!

Input appreciated!

I get no errors in ie6 but it may in others.

Also if you are worried about it not degrading well in older browsers why not just have text links at the very bottom of the page. eg link 1 | link 2 | format or something just small text at the very bottom that will make it good for text browsers and screen readers.

All I see is a combo box with an image on it... no DHTML menu.

:confused:

Cheers for looking...

Its not a DHTML menu really, its a form box used as a menu. Sites like amazon use it as a quick jump menu.

I meant will it alone work OK for nav..?

it should be fine if the user has javascript, might be worth throwing in something like this for those who dont:

<noscript>

A plain HTML version of your menu here

</noscript>

I'm not crazy about this kind of a menu anyway; you'll need to click at least twice where only a single click on a more conventional menu would suffice. Also, for such a limited amount of menu choices i'd prefer offering them all in one view.
This solution has a high gadget quality, but doesn't score that well on usability.

I agree with everything said there.
