megamenu

So if I wanted a megamenu type menu system in my theme... for instance the one at whitehouse.gov or even godaddy.com would there be an easier way of going about it then what I was thinkin.

Ive been doing some studying on how the menus work and such in wordpress and to me it seems like maybe the best way of doing it would be to set up a list of sprites or images or whatever and when you hover on one it brings up a <div> in the

    that you set up for that sprite,

    You could even set up more then 1 set of menus which would be the individual submenus in the divs... least I think I could set that up.

    Id prefer a more elegant solution that dosent involve this much coding in header.php but I haven't come up with one yet lol.
