I read a graph that said 2% of people don't have javascript enabled. I'm thinking of using a javascript dropdown menu.
Looking at this one here:
Do you think it's okay to use javascript? OR should I use something that is accessible by 100% of people?
Or can I do JS and somehow have an alternative for that 2%?

I found a jQuery one that doens't look as nice. Or is jQuery javascript too?
I want a menu where I click an item it drops it down underneath. I don't want a mouse over one, as some some groups will have 30+ items in it and scrolling down will be a pain. So I need something that if they click it or mouse over, it will stay there and they can move their mouse off it, scroll down, etc.

You should be able to do that with a css menu.

That is actually an interesting tool. It can be used to customize pre-coded CSS menus if you click the customize button.

Those are actually CSS menus rather than javascript. They have an option to use a little javascript work-around in them but do not rely on javascript to get the job done.

It says they produce "cross browser / cross code menus, capable of running on 100% Pure CSS alone, or JavaScript if it's present in the browser.

Script enhanced menus retain the full benefits of true Pure CSS code with JavaScript disabled browsers, search engine spiders, screen readers, and validators."

Sometimes we add a little javascript to get our CSS to work better in IE6 (sorry folks, people do still use it and they are not going to switch simply because you want them to).
