I have been searching for a navbar but it needs to be search engine friendly and crawlable by search engine spiders. I see this is possible with "DD Tab Menu IE" (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/ddtabmenu.htm#) but is this also possible with "AnyLink Drop Down Menu IE" (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropmenuindex.htm) which is the script i would prefer to use. First time here, great scripts.

The links inside "Anylink drop down menu" won't be crawlable by most search engines. Google is known to be able to crawl some of the contents of JavaScript files, though in this case, I'd just assume it isn't.

So would you recommend using "DD Tab Menu IE" http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/ddtabmenu.htm# instead if i want links to be crawlable.
Or if you could recommend an alternative crawlable navbar that you have created. Thanks for your prompt reply, and again apologies for starting repeats of the same thread.

DD Tab menu would definitely be crawlable. If you need a drop down menu that's the same, however, there's a commercial script that's search engine friendly: http://www.udm4.com/

Good luck,
