If you talking about drop-downs.... you can use either. But i would probably stick with css. Alot easier to implement as well as no client-side processing. Most of the time we use them in lists. Interested in learning more... google
Did you draw a mock-up of your site first? This will help you figure out what you're trying to build. Once you have a mock-up built, I personally prefer to build my pages from the top down, although another alternative may be to build the overall frame of the page and then fill in all the little details like headers, navigation bars, content, and footer.
When you say menus that look like Technorati's or DaniWeb's, are you referring to horizontal menus, or drop-down menus? Horizontal menus are pretty simple, you just use CSS to set the
<li> 's to
display: none . From there you just have to style it as you'd like.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the constructive feedback guys. It helped alot. I think I understand the use of lists when making the structure of horizontal drop-down menu. The thing is, I did not find anything about how to design those cool menu graphics (especially those ones with rounded corners). CSS menus don't look to cool without some nice graphics. Do I have to create the graphics for the menu backgrounds? Or are there certain tools that can help?
It's best to make it yourself, that way you have the most options and customizations available. But if you don't have access to the software, there are some menu-generating programs out there. There's one I used once at http://purecssmenu.com/. That may prove useful. Otherwise just Google for "drop down menu generator" or something along those lines.
