Applet Features

Here's a menu applet that can contain a lot of information in a small area of your page. Create up to twenty (20) different menu selections. Each selection can contain up to one hundred (100) entries. Menus can also be configured so that images are not required. Modify colors and fonts to fit the scheme of your page.

Each menu item has a list of images and associted text assigned them.  Up to 20 menus and 100 images associated with each menu are allowed. The format for each entry is :

<Param  name = menu1Img0    value  = "Image | Descriptive Text | URL" >

Arguments are seperated with the "|" symbol .
Be sure to place the value argument in quotes. This is required if the descriptive text has more than one word.

A list of items can also be displayed without images.

Note:  All images will be loaded before the applet is displayed. Large image sizes could result in a long delay before the user sees the applet.
