A: Notice that you should have UTF8 charset on your page too:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html" charset="UTF-8">
You can also use another charset on your html page and open your data file in text editor, enter thissymbols and save data file in the way you save your html page.
Notice that you should turn off "Tools/Use utf8 encode" setting inorder to open your data file correctly in Deluxe Tuner.
Q: Using the example menu you have, how do i make the sub-menu for the 'Sample' menu item a multi-column and leave the 'Product Info' menu item as is.
I only want certain sub-menus to have multi-columns. I don't want all menu items to have a multi-column sub.
A: Please, see the attached example.
You should use individual styles.
var menuStyles = [
["smColumns=1"], //style 1
["|Group 1","", , , , , "3", "1", , ], //assign style 1
Q: I am setting up a 3 tab script and each tab opens a new page butthe state of the tab selected reverts back to the default tab.
How do I keep the tab selected for the html vertical tabs when advancing to the next tab (new page)?
A: You should change the selected tab depending on the page you are now.
This Tabs menu can save pressed item automatically within1 page only.
If you open another page, the menu can't remember presseditem.
using any server-side script (php, asp, etc.)
Deluxe Tabs doesn't support API functions which can return theselected tab.
So, you can set "bselectedItem" parameter based on your link beforeyou call data.js file.
For example, move "bselectedItem" parameter from data.js file to yourcode.
<TD vAlign=top align=left>
/* Select Tab */
var bselectedItem=<?php echo $seltabs; ?>;
You should define seltabs using server side script.

I'm down to two dumb questions:
A. What controls the little red arrows? I'd like them on every one of the navigators.
B. How do I create equal space between the drop down menu items? It looks weird right now.
A: 1) If your top item has a submenu this arrow will appear automatically.
For the items without submenus you may write:
["Home <img src='skin_data.files/arrowmain11.gif'>","index.html", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["About Us <img src='skin_data.files/arrowmain11.gif'>","about_us.html", "", "", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
You can find arrowmain11.gif image in the attached example.
Actually you can add any html code inside item's text.
2) Set the drop down menu padding:
var itemPadding="3px 15px 3px 3px";
