I want to build a jquery tab menu using data from a sharepoint list. So i decided to use SPServices from codeplex to get the data via webservices as i would be using it from different site collections- this is a Sharepoint foundation site. my question is should i build my menu first with data first and then use jquery later to structure and style the menu? Or should i just dump the html e.g div and li and the later use jquery to query the html data. Why 'm asking this is i would like to pass querystring with a prameter in the url to the SP list so that i can have the menu selected on the fly e.g default.aspx?selected=HOME so the HOME link would be selected with a background color.
How to use jquery to achieve this just need some guides and samples Thanks
