I realize I'm switching between a lot of ideas here, but it probably just means I'm trying to think creatively in order to find a solution
Accordions for navigation:
Ralph.m: as much as I hate to admit it, I think you're right about accordion menus, for the most part....
I want my new site to have some "wow factor", but in the end designing a website should be more about keeping it simple, functional and deliver the contents in the best possible way.
However, the Mootools Slide-effect accordion is another story as it has practial use for the FAQ page(s) in addition to looking cool, so I've got both covered
For the site navigation I'm starting to look into simple tabs of some sort, realizing that I don't really need navigation with sub-menus with the exception perhaps of the 3-part FAQ as my site is of limited size and complexity).
A horizontal row of tabs right underneath the header could work fine ([example), but given the lengthy FAQ (lots of scrolling to get back to the top) it might be a better idea with a static DIV with those navigation tabs, in the rightmost column -[URL="http://www.devthought.com/"]here's an example](http://www.webdesignserved.com/) (scroll the page down and see the navigation stay in place).
3-section FAQ page:
Without the ability to sub-section navigation to the FAQ (an accordion would allow for that), and feeling that 3 site-navigation tabs would make it look complicated and messy I'm thinking that a single FAQ page would be neater and tidier (just a single "FAQ" navigation button).
Once on that FAQ page the user will be presented with a horizontal row of 3 tabs, such as seen here (scroll down the page).
Will the above ideas work well, or are there better solutions I should look into?
And will those navigation solutions adapt well for mobile viewing devices as well?
