In the last round of debates (when I had to find a drop down menu as
well) I evaluated over a dozen options out there.

In the end, only UDM4 and PVII's products seemed to manage to produce
menus based on good semantic markup with both usability and
accessibility in mind.

So, those are the only two I recommend. UDM4's is a bit more robust,
with several extra bells and whistles, but you pay more for that...both
in cost and size of the scripts one needs to use.

So, *if* you need to use fly-outs, then you can't do much better than
one of the above two products.

IMHO, of course.
