I do it a little differently:
function to output the list. My template pages link to the .js file
in the header, and the function gets called where I want the links to
The big advantage to this is that I don't have to rebuild when I add/
change links. I can just update the js file and the templates display
the new list because it's generated at runtime.
If anyone wants a copy of my JS file and a how-to to add it to their
blog, let me know and I'll send it along.
