This site is pretty straight-forward; the owner just wanted to list his menu and a little information on the web. One of the clever things that the site has is dynamic menu navigation.

This allows the code to know what page it is currently displaying and to show additional menu choices depending on the page. If you visit the site click one of the menu options in the left nav area... you'll see sub menus appear for each menu item. * December 2005: The site was disabled due to non payment.
