idTabs is a jQuery plugin for creating simple to advanced tabs.

Tabs can be added dynamically, the "selected" tab can be acquired, idTabs can be binded to different events like mouseover.

jQuery Tab Plugin

Any element with a class name = idTabs becomes a tabbed area. Every link inside this class becomes a tab & the divs mentioned in these links become the content holders. To be more clear:

<ul class="idTabs">
  <li><a href="#jquery">jQuery</a></li>
  <li><a href="#official">Tabs 3</a></li>
<div id="jquery">If you haven't checked out ...</div>
<div id="official">idTabs is only a simple ...</div>

is a basic 2 tabbed menu.
