bawah ha ha ha!

C'mon Al, this is such a crock, we're not the newb's on the DW boards,
ever heard of the DOM? Pretty sure most the today's browsers have one.
It's a poor workman who blames his tools.

Why not add the onfocus event to fire on any link in a sub menu and add
a check for so you know whether to animate it or not?

I am interested in the source of your numbers on keyboard users,
perhaps you can share those figures with the list.
