Hi Emily,

I think they have done the right thing at the Maine site - the main menu
items are links; the target page in each case has the sub-menu items readily
available. See discussion at
http://jimthatcher.com/webcoursea.htm#Webcourse10.D. Today, for the first
time, I have seen a sample accessible DHTML menu at accessibility.nl
(http://www.accessibility.nl/amenu3/) that is pretty good! The neat (and
simple) trick is to have top level menu items accessed with access keys (1
through 8 in the example).
