Not sure I want to go down the JS library path.
So, even though an mega menu like this one: http://www.solidcactus.com/ (see top nav), would not validate, is it accessible? Can screen readers users understand that the content in the mega menu is associated with the <li>?

YUI menus, as I understand it, are supposed to be semantic and very accessible to those using non-traditional interface devices (including support for the use of the keyboard and, in newer browsers, tags to let screen readers know to treat them as a menu).

I am tinkering with the idea of using mega menus (see examples: http://designm.ag/inspiration/mega-menus/ ) on a site redesign we are doing.
I looked at the source code for a number of these type of menus and am concerned that they are not semantically correct, won't validate, and may not be accessible.
I would appreciate the opportunity to engage in a discussion with this group on the subject.
If you know of an example, perhaps on your own site, that is a good one, would you mind sharing the URL?
