    The validity of your right menu structure wise aside, the main issue with the approach you're using to pull the menu's contents into the Accordion Menu is that you're using window.onload to do this. The Accordion menu is initialized before the window loads, so by the time the contents is pulled in, it's too late already. Regardless, a much cleaner approach is just to put the contents of your right menu in an external file (ie: menu.htm), and dynamically include it for both the right menu and Accordion Menu contents on the page. Is your page SSI enabled?
