It validates, though I'm not sure why. It was my understanding that an 
input element was only allowed inside a form. Even so, I'm not sure 
about your choice to use input elements as list expanders. I would 
probably recommend anchors.

I tried my own (fly out menus, not collapsible) an I'm not entirely 
happy with them, though I'll also post them for review by the script 
techniques committee and other group members.

Original version (keyboard accessible with two CSS files):
  <http://cookiecrook.com/bugtests/menus/demo.htm>
  <http://cookiecrook.com/bugtests/menus/demo2.htm>

Revision with skip section links:
  <http://cookiecrook.com/bugtests/menus/menus_backup.htm>

Current version (keyboard access removed entirely):
  <http://cookiecrook.com/bugtests/menus/menus.htm>

Still working on the latest version. It's to replace the menus at 
TexasOnline so sub-level navigation is ancillary; no need for it in 
order to be accessible. See explanation on current version.
