DD Tab Menu is a standards compliant, 2 level tab menu. Move your mouse over a tab, and a 2nd level content appears beneath it. The script uses CSS to control all of its appearance, and plain HTML to implement the entire menu tabs and contents.

- Standards compliant, with menu tabs and sub contents defined using
plain HTML, making customization a breeze. Five styles to choose from by

content is shown as well. Or, have the script automatically
select a tab when the page loads based on a match between the current
page’s URL and one of the menu tabs’. If there is a match, that tab is
Note that the “auto select tab” feature mentioned above is rudimentary
