I need a 4-level horizontal menu. which is the best way to build, organize and style it? "Active" tabs should be highlighted.

<?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'header-menu' ) ); ?>


<?php wp_list_pages('include=137,693,139,147&title_li='); ?>

I am new to using wp_nav_menu();. I have built 2-level wp_list_pages(); menus.

You will get better results and more control using the wp_nav_menu function as it allows you to control the menu items.

look into Twenty Eleven how the menu is done there. it also has the full css for a horizontal dropdown menu. – Michael Sep 8 '11 at 21:02
