Html Custom Menu

Hello guys

I’ve got a problem that is probably really simple but I’ve been unable to find any thing online to help me. I have two top bars on my website in rapid weaver 6 (stacks 3.x). Problem is I don’t want the same things on both sides so I went to design a basic html nav. bar but I can’t get it to work. In fact I’m unable to make anything work with it. the default code works every know and then and I’m not sure what I’m doing right or wrong. I have worked with html before but I’m really rusty so I do need a refresher. Essentially I need to know how to setup my html code what does a functioning custom html nav bar look like? thanks.
