How to create horizontal navigation bar using css script (drop down menu version)

oOne of the horizontal navigation menus are created using css and html scripts that can be put on the blog is a horizontal navigation menu / dropdown menu. As the picture below:


In this tutorial we will build the navigation bar from a standard HTML and css script list.

font-weight:bold;
}
