1) Script Title: Animated Collapsible DIV v2.4

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/animatedcollapse.htm

3) Describe problem: I want to use this script (I think), because it will do what I'm trying to do. I have the beginnings of a site here: http://sunrisemarketingusa.com/ . When you mouse over the menu tabs, you get a css dropdown...problem, I can't use links inside that css as the dropdown is already triggered by an empty link and I can't nest links! I also tried putting a php form inside one of the drop downs, that was also a no go. So I'm thinking the animated collapsible div will work, but here is what I'm needing to know:
1. Can I put links inside the content without breaking the code?
2. Can I use css with the content to keep my nice curved boxes like I have going on now? (not as important, but still would like).
Thanks for any and all assistance, much appreciated.

I think another script would be more suitable for a menu - the one you've selected is more appropriate for FAQs or something like that.

Might I suggest using one of these options instead?

DD Mega Menu: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/ddmegamenu.htm
jQuery MegaMenu 2: http://www.geektantra.com/2010/05/jquery-megamenu-2/
CSS3 Mega Drop-DOwn Menu: http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/html-css-techniques/how-to-build-a-kick-butt-css3-mega-drop-down-menu/

All can be customised with CSS so you'll be able to style them up with rounbded corners and all will support an array of HTML elements inside their dropdown boxes.
