I've had a look at various menu scripts for my project and find that there is always some kind of a snag in the structure that makes the script unusable.

What I want is fairly simple. Preferably in PHP.

Left column simply lists the alphabet.
Center column lists the various items available. With possibly a thousand items.
Right column has all the details for the selected item.
Or the 3 columns could just be on top of each other.

Anyone have such an animal or willing to write the script?
I looked through the scripts here on DD and could not find any similar.
