A while ago, i was goingthrough w3schools.com and i came accross where you learn DHTML where you can make Javascript menus and such.
But then i found out that most of them are only compatible with IE Oups
I've noticed how some sites have Javascript menus that work perfectly in all browsers. Do you know how i can modify those menus i learnt to work in all browsers?

Javascript Menu Compatibility

Hi Fruitcake,
All Browsers is a big ask, some old browsers don't support CSS or JavaScript so those will not see the menu as you may want but instead depending on the menu should see just a list of links.
This one I put together works in many browsers and degrades to a bulleted list if CSS is not supported.
IF JavaScript is disabled the menu wont work in IE but it will keep working in most other browsers.

Hope that helps

Javascript Menu Compatibility

Thanks.
I guess i could make the original links that usually display the javascript menu link to a page where it will list the different links in the list anyway. If that makes sense :S

If you know any other methods please feel free to share Smile
