CSS does not suck, but it can be a bit frustrating…

On a recent project, I started building a pure-CSS drop-down menu system. It worked… Sort of… In some browsers… Almost. In total, I probably spent two days reading, testing, tweaking, and reload and at the end I gave up, because as much as I love CSS, and wanted a pure-CSS solution to work for this particular project, I just couldn’t spend any more time on it. I ended up deleting the 50 or so extra lines of CSS the menu system needed, and went with the gMenu system, which uses a combination of CSS (yay!) and Javascript (ugh!) and works. Oh, it’s also open-source.

I’m still not 100% set on gMenu, so if you have another suggestion, please let me know. I would prefer a pure-CSS solution without Javascript, but I don’t think that will work. What do you use for drop-down menu systems?

    I mainly use JS & CSS for a menu system like this. We’re using a system like this at work and I tend to like it more, the more I mess with it. I’ll see if I can track down the source.
