Hi

I was wondering what is the best way to create a popup menu within a page?

Ajax? or what?

Thanks.

What's a popup menu? Like the context menu in Windows? You click somewhere and a small menu pops up at that spot?

JavaScript would be needed, but not necessarily Ajax.

The styling/appearance or the contents of the menu items?

A menu that depends on Ajax or javascript is not recommended, since it may prevent search engines from indexing your site. Use server-side scripting like PHP instead.

An ordinary menu, yes (but it could use minimal JS without screwing up for SEs). But if the OP really means a context menu JS would be needed.
