After seeing the Hoverbox Image Gallery developed by Nathan Smith, I thought that a similar approach would work very nicely for a menu. This would allow you to create a much larger rollover image for each menu item, overlapping the neighbouring menu items and other elements on the page.

This meant making some changes to the original Hoverbox code.
