Selecting version 3 or version 5 of the menu

I've seen some questions about programmatically selecting version 3 or version 5 -- meaning I'd like to select version 3 for older browsers and use version 5 for new browsers.

I know you did some coding to achieve this, but I never did find a resolution. Were you able to programmatically select either version 3 or version 5 depending on the browser?

I don't have much time at the moment to play around with it myself, but I'd be interested to hear about your experience.

As far as I know we never got that to work. The one thing we did get working was to load two different version 5 data files, one for ns4x and one for the rest. The data file for ns4x was a simple one with no fancy stuff in it.
<script language=JavaScript src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script language=JavaScript type="text/javascript">
if (ns4) {
  _d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=><\/scr"+"ipt>");
  _d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=><\/scr"+"ipt>");
else {
  _d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=><\/scr"+"ipt>");
  _d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=><\/scr"+"ipt>");

The other option which someone used, I think I gave a link for that post, but in case I'm confused it's here .... this was to not load the menu at all for ns4 and provide a text link.

If you have ns4 here's a link to a pageon my site where I load the two different files. If you have ns4 you will see a plain blue menu, if you're using something else you see the regular one.
