Blaine, this may just be my preference, but I like this one over the one 
at Portal Parts because visually, its cleaner, and you don't have to use 
additional <span> tags, just a pure UL, with a class for parent links.

Your site menu requires javascript vs pure CSS that my site header and 
the online config manager are using. JS will certainly allow more 
control and jazz. I've investigated 100's of different menu's as part of 
my glMenu project and there are always great new ideas - it's and 
endless search :) The most flexible JS menu is still Milionic albeit not 
really free. For pure CSS based menu's I've not really seen better then 
on Stuart's cssplay site - he's a CSS menu guru.
