    Ok, I downloaded a JS for use on my active desktop, It is a nice little menu bar deal. My problem is that I can't figuare out how to modify it so that the bar is displayed where I want it (vertically) along the left side of the screen. Currently is is about 1/3rd the way down. I just can't seem to figuare out who to adjust the vertical position.

    Here is the JS code:


    NS6 = (document.getElementById&&!document.all)
    IE = (document.all)
    NS = (navigator.appName=="Netscape" && navigator.appVersion.charAt(0)=="4")

    tempBar='';barBuilt=0;ssmItems=new Array();

    moving=setTimeout('null',1)
    function moveOut() {
    if ((NS6||NS)&&parseInt(ssm.left)<0 || IE && ssm.pixelLeft<0) {
    clearTimeout(moving);moving = setTimeout('moveOut()', slideSpeed);slideMenu(10)}
    else {clearTimeout(moving);moving=setTimeout('null',1)}};
    function moveBack() {clearTimeout(moving);moving = setTimeout('moveBack1()', waitTime)}
    function moveBack1() {
    if ((NS6||NS) && parseInt(ssm.left)>(-menuWidth) || IE && ssm.pixelLeft>(-menuWidth)) {
    clearTimeout(moving);moving = setTimeout('moveBack1()', slideSpeed);slideMenu(-10)}
    else {clearTimeout(moving);moving=setTimeout('null',1)}}
    function slideMenu(num){
    if (IE) {ssm.pixelLeft += num;}
    if (NS||NS6) {ssm.left = parseInt(ssm.left)+num;}
    if (NS) {bssm.clip.right+=num;bssm2.clip.right+=num;}}

    function makeStatic() {
    if (NS||NS6) {winY = window.pageYOffset;}
    if (IE) {winY = document.body.scrollTop;}
    if (NS6||IE||NS) {
    if (winY!=lastY&&winY>YOffset-staticYOffset) {
    smooth = .2 * (winY - lastY - YOffset + staticYOffset);}
    else if (YOffset-staticYOffset+lastY>YOffset-staticYOffset) {
    smooth = .2 * (winY - lastY - (YOffset-(YOffset-winY)));}
    else {smooth=0}
    if(smooth > 0) smooth = Math.ceil(smooth);
    else smooth = Math.floor(smooth);
    if (IE) bssm.pixelTop+=smooth;
    if (NS6||NS) bssm.top=parseInt(bssm.top)+smooth
    lastY = lastY+smooth;
    setTimeout('makeStatic()', 1)}}

    function buildBar() {
    if(barText.indexOf('<IMG')>-1) {tempBar=barText}
    else{for (b=0;b<barText.length;b++) {tempBar+=barText.charAt(b)+"<BR>"}}
    document.write('<td align="center" rowspan="100" width="'+barWidth+'" bgcolor="'+barBGColor+'" valign="'+barVAlign+'"><p align="center"><font face="'+barFontFamily+'" Size="'+barFontSize+'" COLOR="'+barFontColor+'"><B>'+tempBar+'</B></font></p></TD>')}

    function initSlide() {
    if (NS6){ssm=document.getElementById("thessm").style;bssm=document.getElementById("basessm").style;
    bssm.clip="rect(0 "+document.getElementById("thessm").offsetWidth+" "+document.getElementById("thessm").offsetHeight+" 0)";ssm.visibility="visible";}
    else if (IE) {ssm=document.all("thessm").style;bssm=document.all("basessm").style
    bssm.clip="rect(0 "+thessm.offsetWidth+" "+thessm.offsetHeight+" 0)";bssm.visibility = "visible";}
    else if (NS) {bssm=document.layers["basessm1"];
    bssm2=bssm.document.layers["basessm2"];ssm=bssm2.document.layers["thessm"];
    bssm2.clip.left=0;ssm.visibility = "show";}
    if (menuIsStatic=="yes") makeStatic();}

    function buildMenu() {
    if (IE||NS6) {document.write('<DIV ID="basessm" style="visibility:hidden;Position : Absolute ;Left : '+XOffset+' ;Top : '+YOffset+' ;Z-Index : 20;width:'+(menuWidth+barWidth+10)+'"><DIV ID="thessm" style="Position : Absolute ;Left : '+(-menuWidth)+' ;Top : 0 ;Z-Index : 20;" onmouseover="moveOut()" onmouseout="moveBack()">')}

    Here is a screen shot of what I am talking about. The White arrow shows where the top of the meun box starts currently and the red arrow is where I would like the top to start.
