//Drop Down/ Overlapping Content:
//**Updated: Dec 19th, 07': Added ability to dynamically populate a Drop Down content using an external file (Ajax feature)
//**Updated: Feb 29th, 08':
//1) Added ability to reveal drop down content via "click" of anchor link (instead of default "mouseover")
//2) Added ability to disable drop down content from auto hiding when mouse rolls out of it
//3) Added hidediv(id) public function to directly hide drop down div dynamically

var dropdowncontent={
disableanchorlink: true, //when user clicks on anchor link, should link itself be disabled (always true if "revealbehavior" above set to "click")
hidedivmouseout: [false, 200], //Set hiding behavior within Drop Down DIV itself: [hide_div_onmouseover?, miliseconds_before_hiding]
