IF YOU'VE completed yesterday's assignment, and shared the  code of your dazzling menubars with Mr. Knowles, you can rest assured that he's very impressed with your work. If you haven't finished that, keep working on it.

When the teacher you designed for saw your FANTASTIC work, he/she decided he/she wanted a little more for his/her website. So here's what you need to figure out next:

He or she wants to be able to nest sub-menus inside the menu you've created. 

In other words, under a menutab called Algebra, for example, the teacher wants to have a drop-down option that offers Homework, Policies, Grades, and Contact Me. It would be great if these options "popped out" when the user hovered the cursor over a tab. 

Like this:
 Resting            On Hover
Biology
Algebra
Calculus
French


Biology
Algebra
    Homework
    Policies
    Grades
    Contact Me

Calculus
French


Can you do this? Do you know enough about lists, and nested lists, to make your fantastic menubar even better? Of course, you'd need to add the nested items to ALL the teacher's classes, not just one. And then, you'd need to do it horizontally and vertically on the same page.

Can you do it? I bet you can. Give it a try (and this article should help.... a lot!)

Share with Mr. Knowles whatever you come up with by the end of the period, then have a great weekend!
