Yes we can,

  I hope below example helps you.Instead of onclick you have to use oncontextmenu.

  // e is the event which gecko engines required where el is the <li> tag
  function showMenu(e,el) {
     with(el) {
       style.cssText="font:...."; // your css for menu appearance.
       left= (window.event) ? event.clientX : e.clientX;
       top= (window.event) ? event.clientY : e.clientY;
       display = "block";
     return false;// suspend the browser specific right click menu.

 Just try this ..

Keep Smiling that doesn't cost you much...

Hari Kishore.
