Spry MenuBar Widget Links.....
 
I notice that when using the Spry menu bar properties window, one is required to give the primary menu items a link even if it has a submenu. In most websites I've seen with drop-down menus, the primary menu item (for example "about") acts as a header for the submenu items which are active links. But the primary menu item does not have a link itself. It seems there is no way to construct this kind of drop down menu with the Spry menu bar. Am I wrong on this or can I make it so the primary menu item has no link itself and merely acts as a header for the submenu item links?
Thanks.

The easy answer is to just insert # for the link (although that may take jump you to the top of the page if you've scrolled down a bit for the menu).

Another option is to create a new style class specifically for those links that mimics the look of a regular link and apply it as necessary.

One usability question? If the items with submenus look and act like links, shouldn't they link to something?

That is not my experience, at all.
