Get a fricking decent browser already.
I have. Links lets me surf without all the flashy colours and blinking GIFs, and it's actually very good at producing a close resemblance of the actual layout using a TTY. And a graphical browser is hardly viable if you're connecting via SSH over an ISDN line's 7.6kb/s anyway. Yes, some of us do.

DHTML menus, allowing you display a great deal of information in a small area
Unfortunately, your DHTML menus won't work for 50% of your audience unless you put in a gargantuan effort to develop for multitudes of browser brands and versions.
