It's a good example of a dropdown box, but yes, I think
it's confusing, especially since none of the links go
anyplace. I've handled this similarly to the "survey
response" I mentioned earlier -- call a short PHP page
with two paramaters: the calling page and the name of
the simulated link. Response would be, "If this were a
real site, this would be the 'Education' page" -- a
button would allow return to where you were.
