2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/navigate1.htm

3) Describe problem: I am new to javascript and DHTML. I have followed your procedure and implemented your simple tree menu. Every thing works fine and my probelm over here is that I want a certain part of the tree to be opened by default. I looked into .js file but couldn't understand anything. Please help me out.

From the documentation here (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/navigate1.htm):

Changing the contract/expand state of a tree menu

By default when you transform a list into tree menu, all sublists are contracted until clicked on. You can set a particular sublist (and all of its parent sublists, if any) to be expanded by default by inserting the attribute:


<li>Folder 1.1
<ul rel="open">
<li>Sub Item 1.1.1</li>
<li>Sub Item 1.1.2</li>
<li>Folder 1.1.1
<ul>
<li>Sub item 1.1.1.1</li>
<li>Sub item 1.1.1.2</li>
<li>Sub item 1.1.1.3</li>
<li>Sub item 1.1.1.4</li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>

inside the UL element you wish to be expanded automatically when the page loads.
