I'm not 100% sure what you're actually asking for here. Do you want a tabbed menu?
...post a little more info and we should be able to help :)

The tab control would need left and right arrows to scroll along the tabs in case more tabs were added than would fit on the screen.
The tab control could look like the ones at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxtabscontent/index.htm but it does not need a content section. I will use layers/divs for content.
The main thing is to have a navigation UI that emulates the look and feel of tabs because it is a UI element that many people are familiar with.
I may have to incorporate CSS to get the tab look and feel - but, I'm still looking.
The tabs should have events that fire for (at least) onclick and mouseover (the more events the better, of course).
And, cross-browser compatability is a MUST. Even if it means the tabs look kind of cheesy. Cheesy tabs beat no tabs every time.
Thanks for your help. I'll keep poking at it....

ok thanks - it's much clearer now!
i assume that if you want to add/remove tabs, these should be stored in some database for future use?
What I tend to do with menu's (or in this case tabs) is to create a bullet list in html then use CSS to style each one in to a "tab".
In fact the example you gave does that.
All you'd do is probably use some Ajax to send a request to the server which would add a new tab or using the same method, remove one.
is that what you mean?

That's exactly what I DON'T want to do. There is no database list for the tabs.
Well, I don't really know how to make it much clearer - so it looks like I'm on my own with this one.
