how to optimize the menu size

I ran my site ... ummary.htm

through a web site speed analyzer. I get good results on everything except the script. Here is the warning:

SCRIPT_SIZE - Warning! The total size of external your scripts is 12848 bytes, which is over 8K. Consider optimizing your scripts for size, combining them, and using compression where appropriate for any scripts placed in the HEAD of your documents.

I am only using the milonic script. Is this the cause of the problem? If so, what can I do to fix it?

I'm not sure there is a 'problem' per se. The total bytes of the scripts is not much more than your images, the download time at 56 k dialup is 6 secs, even at 33k it's less than 10 secs and even at 28k it's only 11 and 1/2 secs. That time is for the whole page to be downloaded, not those scripts.

There's no way that I know to 'combine' your menu_data file into the milonic file.

Have you compressed your menu_data.js file through the Javascript compactor?

I believe the Milonic Menu source files are already compressed. I think that's what accounts for the code being on one long line.

I tried running my source files through the compressor, but didn;t gain anything.
