Initial URL

Initial Description
When applied to a page, this script converts any sub-menus created in the Wordpress menu editor into drop-down menus without having to specify each menu item individually. Fades in sub-menu of selected list item quickly, then fades out when leaving list item or sub-menu. See url above.

Only decided to post this because I couldn't find anything similar and was sick of working with inefficient menu creator plugins in WP.
