dynamic menu from database - expanded style

just to point out before anyone jumps down my throat (;)), yes i did read "dynamic menu items from a database", and i found it extremely helpful, even though it wasn't meant for version 5 of the menu. the post i found most useful was milo's mockup, and i can't thank him enough for putting up a real, working example. i can honestly say i wouldn't have gotten my own menu half-way working without that.

ok, now on to the question i have. what do you more experienced users think is the most efficient way of putting my menu together, both in .js and .asp coding as well as how the database is set up? my menu has both main links and sublinks to main links showing all at the same time. sub-sublinks are the ones that appear when you hover over the sublinks. main links have no hovering menu. currently, all my links are showing on the page, but i'd like to move the sub-subs off to the hovering style that makes milonic so great. i'm not sure of the best way to do that.

i think my problem will be best shown by letting you all see both the test page i created and my main site (ignore everything but the menu on the main site. it will be changing constantly to show my dad different things, and no doubt it will look extremely hideous at times).
- test site
- main site
- test site files

now, i won't say the way i've done it is the best way, so if you know a better way, for pete's sake don't be shy about pointing out to me the errors of my ways. :P thanks everyone.
