It is a special case.  Normally, you'd want child pages to appear in the
menu.  In this case, we especially didn't -- the child pages were only
linked to from the page body.

Two differences:

1) index.html had no visible child pages.  In JS, it would.
2) The parent entry in the menu, 'Index', loads a page when clicked.  In
JS, the entry would trigger an open/close action, not load a page.

This is a minor limitation with the JS, that menu entries cannot double
as both page links and parents of other entries.  Either a menu entry is
a page link, or an open/close menu category.
