Deluxe Menus & Deluxe Tuner v3.15 (October 15, 2010)
Since v.3.15, Deluxe Menu is fully accessible even if Javascript is disabled in browser. Without a Javascript support, menu runs as pure CSS menu that still looks the same! Now, by default Deluxe Tuner generates a separate css file with menu design and standard HTML ul/li list for menu items to provide this functionality. All new menu templates are accessible as CSS menus as well.

Deluxe Menu
1. New parameter separatorColor is added.
2. Image border for submenus did not appear in Opera with cross-frame mode. This bug is fixed.
3. pathPrefix parameter did not use when exporting. This bug is fixed.
CSS Menu

Deluxe Menus & Deluxe Tuner v3.9 (August 28, 2009)
Deluxe Menu
1. Sliding image background for items - 1 image slides to fit item size.

2. Image border and background for submenu.

3. 3 new cross-browser visual effects for submenu appearance - Fading (100), Widening (101), Sliding (102)!

Previous versions supported IE transitions only.
4. 13 new great menu templates showcasing the use of new features: UL/LI menu items, visual effects, image background and border with transparency and sliding.
5. You can set multiple values for itemBorderWidth and menuBorderWidth parameters, for example: 0 1px 2px 0.
6. HTML ul/li list can be used for menu item structure. The previous versions of Deluxe Menu created the menu items based on menuItems array in data js file. Since v3.9 the Deluxe Menu can read the menu links from standard HTML unordered list of links.
Benefits:
* Regular nested UL list is a most natural method for defining a multi-level menu.
* Pure HTML is highly accessible and search engine friendly.
* You can easily change, add, and remove items from the menu by editing this HTML code.
Disadvantage:
If you change the menu items you have to change all HTML pages, not a single .js data file. You can still use an old menuItems array, if you don't like it.

7. LI structure for items (including AJAX items) is added.
var LIitems=1;
If TRUE the menu items structure will be generated as an HTML unordered list, <UL><LI> tags, inside HTML page.
If FALSE the items will be generated as menuItems[] array in data.js file.

If you want to convert your menu to the menu with LI structure you should do the following:
1) Open your data file in Deluxe Tuner.
2) Set LIitems parameter to true: var LIitems=1;.
3) Export your menu into html page, go to "File/Export to HTML".
4) The following files will be generated: *.html file with the code for LI items, project file and a folder with all menu files.
5) Open the generated *.html file in any text editor and copy all code for the menu:
HEAD tag:

<script type="text/javascript">var dmWorkPath="deluxe-menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="deluxe-menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>

BODY tag (place the following code in the place where you want to have a menu):

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><p><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">java dropdown menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></p></noscript>
<!-- Code for Deluxe Menu Items. Generated by Deluxe Tuner -->
<div class="dmlinks" style="font:normal 11px Trebuchet MS, Tahoma, Arial;color:#000000;text-decoration:none">
<ul id="dmenu_1" class="dmenu_1">
<li><a>Item 1</a>
<ul>
<li><a>Item 4</a></li>
<li><a>Item 5</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a>Item 2</a></li>
<li><a>Item 3</a></li>
</ul>
</div>
<!-- End of Code for Deluxe Menu Items -->

Add this code on your own page.
6) If you want to edit your menu later you should open your project file.
