In your blogs Design Page click Add A Gadget > Choose Html/Javascript > Copy and paste the following code into the Html/Javascript gadget :

<div class="menu">

<ul>
<li><a href="#" id="current">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="#" >Products</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="#">Drop Down CSS Menus</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Horizontal CSS Menus</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Vertical CSS Menus</a></li>

<li><a href="#">Dreamweaver Menus</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="/faq.php">FAQ</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="#">Drop Down CSS Menus</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Horizontal CSS Menus</a></li>

<li><a href="#">Vertical CSS Menus</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Dreamweaver Menus</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="/contact/contact.php">Contact</a></li>
</ul>
</div>

This is the code that makes up the menu in the demo above.Replace the hash tags (#) with your links and the text with your text.If you take a few minutes to reference the demo and the code you should see how it works.If you want to add more links you can do so in the same way, once again take a few minutes to look at the layout of the code and you will see how its done.
