<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>jQuery  Drop Down Menu</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
$("#van-one li").hover(
function(){ $("ul", this).fadeIn("slow"); }, 
function() { } 
);
if (document.all) {
$("#van-one li").hoverClass ("sfHover");
}
});

$.fn.hoverClass = function(c) {
return this.each(function(){
$(this).hover( 
function() { $(this).addClass(c); },
function() { $(this).removeClass(c); }
);
});
}; 
</script>

<style type="text/css">

/* vanigation */
.van, .van ul { 
list-style: none;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

.van {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

}
#van-one li:hover a, 
#van-one li.sfHover a {
background: #ccc;
color: #000;
}
#van-one li:hover ul a, 
#van-one li.sfHover ul a {
background: #F0ff0f;
color: #000000; 
}
#van-one li:hover ul a:hover, 
#van-one li.sfHover ul a:hover {

}

.van ul {

list-style: none;
margin: 0;
width: 100px;
position: absolute;

}
.van li:hover ul,
.van li.sfHover ul {

}
.van ul li {
border: 0;

}
.van ul a {
border: 1px solid #000;

padding-right: 20px;
width: 80px;
white-space: nowrap;
}
.van ul a:hover {

}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<ul id="van-one" class="van">
<li>

<a href="#item1">item A</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="#itemA1">item A1</a></li>
<li><a href="#itemA2">item A2</a></li>
<li><a href="#itemA3">item A3</a></li>

<li>
<a href="#item3">item C</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="#itemC1">item C1</a></li>
<li><a href="#itemC2">item C2</a></li>

</ul>
</li>

</ul>

<br clear="all" />

</body>
</html>
