This post is very basic level Jquery and CSS implementation. I want to explain how to design simple drop down menu  with CSS, HTML and Jquery. This system helps you to minimise the menus list. Just take a quick look at this post very few lines of code, use it and enrich your web projects.

HTML Code
Simple HTML code

<div class="dropdown">
<a class="account" >My Account</a>

<div class="submenu">
<ul class="root">
<li ><a href="#Dashboard" >Dashboard</a></li>
<li ><a href="#Profile" >Profile</a></li>
<li ><a href="#settings">Settings</a></li>
<li ><a href="#feedback">Send Feedback</a></li>
</ul>
</div>

</div>

JavaScript
Contains javascipt code. $(“.account”).click(function(){} account is the class name of the My Account anchor tag. Using $(this).attr(‘id’) calling id value of the anchor tag and based on condition showing .submenu div box and the same time $(this).attr(‘id’, ‘1’) adding id value too.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js
"></script>;
<script type="text/javascript" >
$(document).ready(function()
{

$(".account").click(function()
{
var X=$(this).attr('id');
if(X==1)
{
$(".submenu").hide();
$(this).attr('id', '0'); 
}
else
{
$(".submenu").show();
$(this).attr('id', '1');
}

});

//Mouse click on sub menu
$(".submenu").mouseup(function()
{
return false
});

//Mouse click on my account link
$(".account").mouseup(function()
{
return false
});


//Document Click
$(document).mouseup(function()
{
$(".submenu").hide();
$(".account").attr('id', '');
});
});
</script>

Document click on document $(document).mouseup(function() hiding the .submenu
