Trying to figure out if I can do this with front page, and having little success, other than being pointed to a lot of JavaScript - which is something I don't know how to do yet, so it's beyond my level for now.

Group One Documents<-- click this to get the menu options
Document One Link
Document Two Link
Document Three Link

It's just one instance of a popdown menu, and the header "Group One Documents" is already text inside a table.. But I still don't think this is as complicated as the MSDN instructions I found (whose Front Page tutorial involved a suspiciously large amount of hand-coding for a WYSIWYG web editor).

I thought this was something WYSIWYG editors like FrontPage were able to do for you... I thought I was able to do that in Dreamweaver, back when I was in college. But work doesn't use DW, and I don't have the money for my own liscence. <headdesk>

Can someone point me to a tutorial that would show me which options I'm failing to find and use to implement this?

Do you mean a combox?

WYSIWYG editors largely can only allow you to drag and drop elements onto a page. Javascript is actual programming, and drag and drop coding is sort of meaningless outside of toy applications like Alice.

Close, but I need the header, and each option in the box has to be linkable.

<select>
<option><a href="http://www.volvo.com">Volvo</a></option>
</select>

Didn't work when I attempted it. If I'm going to do something like that, it needs to be more like the navigation on, say, thinkgeek, where each option opens a new window, or takes you to a new location in the same window. I took a look at that source and tried the same tag edit...

<select>
<option value="http://www.volvo.com">Volvo</option>
</select>

I need the whole <select name="p" onchange="window.location=this.options[this.selectedIndex].value; return true" class="smalldropdown"> line, too?

EDIT: It does use javascript... but it has a nice tutorial to go with it.
