Yes, exactly. :)

I did not understand why you made all those submenu files, now it is
clear, thanks for explanation.

Ooooh, yep. With this usage all the submenus share the same id 
namespace, which
is totally bad. If I have them in one file, then I cannot have a submenu 
"contact_info" in more than one submenu! Another reason to find a better
solution :)

I tested the second example of navbars from the documentation in the first
"course" with wml, but that is absolutely not dealing with selection on the
second navbar. (Now I see this way, but I am still not satisfied, 
because the
missing selection/activation of the parent menuitems when I want.)

Thanks for all the ideas! :-) I will upload my current state homepage to 
location, to show, what can be done with the patch and cannot be done 
(well, if you see the current www.netngine.hu, you see what can be done, 
that is not yed done with it but our own "miniwml" ;-) Select servies, 
hosting, select email hosting, and test the sate of the mnu buttons 
while you
do. I failed to create the SAME with original navbar.wml. (Same thing is 
on www.imedeen.com or .cz) (on the latter two sites you need microsoft 
to view the menu, or the page correctly) (were not by us ;)
