1) CODE TITLE:
Multiple Suckertree-menu Vertical

2) AUTHOR NAME/NOTES:
Raymond Angana

3) DESCRIPTION:
A script which manages to make suckertree-menu vertical to work with classNames instead of id.
Advantage of this script is that suckertree-menu vertical could appear as many times as we wish on a page.

Inspired by: this thread (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35328) and DD's SuckerTree-menu vertical (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/item/suckertree-menu-vertical/)

4) Demo:

Nice, I really like it. Now give it a real style. Again I like it, hope you can extend more on it such as horizontally placed on the page.
I hope this helps,
Nile
