    Good Navigation Design Examples?

    OK, I'm looking for good examples of how to design a navigation system for a business site. I'm looking for the following criteria in the menus:

    * Good use of color/contrast

    * Can handle at least 3-4 levels deep (e.g. Cars > Domestic > Ford > Models).

    * Easy to use!

    * Preferably a horizatal menu across the top. Side bar navigation menus take up precious horizontal space. The site will be mostly forms and will need a lot of the horizontal space. Please give examples of good side bar menus as well though.

    Pluses:

    * Dynamic Menus

    Just to get you started:

    Nice! That is a pretty neat site. It even gives you a common language to describe the different elements. Thank you very much.

    Any others? Come on, everyone bashes bad design (the easy thing). Now here is your chance to point out good ones (the hard thing).
