You could replicate quite a bit of it using some of the actions available, such as Walt’s Carousel and Scriptyaccordion, even CSS menus for that matter. A little creative thinking, and a lot of experimenting should get you there.
The more I follow this thread, the less I realise I know. I was fascinated to follow the link to the CSS Play site, blown away by the example shown, and probably couldn’t even envisage some or any of the other effects achieved.
But coming back to the Rising Menus illustrated, from where would I download the code, or is it obtained via View Source? Either way, once in possession of the code, where and how would it be incorporated into Freeway. Having seen DD’s instant example, I hope it’s not beyond such relatively limited Freeway knowledge I might have.

cool stuff and a way to go - no doubt. Could you shoot me the fw-file? It’s in fact actual overwhelming me. I’ll try to insert it in my actual state of the art:
thanks for the nightly built - the man that never sleeps?
I see - MarkUp Elements.
Hmmm, this makes it not really easier to style it out and get full control of - isn’t it? The pain to me is, that he defines all elements in lists (ul, li, dl, dt, dd) and DD would probably the only thing to understand :-))).
OK - I think to cry a few hours about it would actually the best and come back if I (or the experts) know more.
I am back Thomas, but not ‘fixed’. I got my pre-med and was taken to theatre but there was a problem with the theatre heating system and what with short staffing due to the horrendous snow and trauma patients being prioritised I didn’t get DONE!
My op was cancelled and I was sent home!
The bad news for you is that there appears to be no WSIWYG method in FW to achieve this and you are stuck with the markup way.
What I will try and do is put one together that at least contains the styles in the FW doc to make it easier to tweak it to the look you want even if the content of the ‘Risers’ has to be done/modified in Markup.
Or you may choose another method entirely - up to you.
I don’t see anything on the page called Riser. Can you point that out
for me? Also, I see a mash of different bits of script in the source
place the way you have done? Did BBB give you that code and require
you to use it for some reason? I’ve always just used a straight
hyperlink to the URL they give you, seems to work fine. Look on http://goodserviceguide.com
for one example.

Any idea why I get an “error on the script: Line 383, Character 3,
Object Required”; when hovering over Riser
