Q: As I have stated before, your Deluxe-Menu is very very good.

But there is allways room for improvement.

Is there any chance to see support for the following in Deluxe-Menu:

When I move the mousepointer above a menuitem and right-click I would like to see in the javascript contextual menu (the context menu provided by the browser):

Open Link in new window

Q: I try to fix the height of the submenu "Zone Climatiques" to 400px but I didn't find the way to do this. It worked by setting   var smHeight=400px but that setting set all submenus. I would like set only the height of "Zone climatiques" submenu.
  Thanks for your help.

A: You should create Individual Style

  var menuStyles = [
["menuBackColor=transparent","menuBorderWidth=0","itemSpacing=1","itemPadding=0px 5px 0px 5px"],

and assign it to the first item in submenu
["3101 - Ste-Anne-Des-Monts","ProcessClimaticZone/,2003-11-13", , , , , ,"1","stationSubMenu.htm?climaticZoneId=3101,2003-11-13",],

Q: I have one problem you may be able to help with:

If I set

  var tsaveState = 1;

The following errors are generated:

_tls is not defined

tob has no properties

and the menu doesn't display.

If you could help with this I would be grateful.

You should install your menu so:

<noscript><a href="">Javascript Tree Menu by</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dtree.js"></script>
