Hi all,

I'd like to replace catalog_vertical with my 'own' menu 
(http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/hvmenu/index.htm). I've tried 
stripping everything form the component and replacing it with the code 
from the mentioned link, but apparently things doesnt work that easy.
How would I go about to create my own vertical item list? I thought that 
  a component was built up of html and/or itl? Is itl needed or is it 
possible to only use html. If so, how come nothing shows up if I publish 
my own code? I have placed the necessary .js's in /pages
If I place this code in a plain text.html file the menu shows up just 
fine. What am I doing wrong??
Here the content of the modifies catalog_vertical:

ui_name: category_vertical
ui_type: component
ui_class: vertical
ui_group: Navigation
ui_label: Vertical category list
