Hi all, can anyone help me with a knotty problem I'm having with IE6/Win.

The navigation for one of my sites (http://www.alasdairgray.org) uses a rule to hide the button images on rollover, revealing the over state - which is the background image. This effect works perfectly on every browser and platform I've tested except IE6 for Windows which just ignores the rollover completely.

Can anyone tell me why? And how do I fix it?

Thanks,
iphillip

IE6 Win dropping img visibility rollover effect

This is a known IE bug.
I think the best answer in your case is to add ~
#navList a:hover {white-space: normal;}
to your css.

The reason is explained here ~

It's not what you do it's the way that you do it.
So do it with STYLE

The source code is missing,

The source code is missing, but it totally worked on my rollover button:

HTML:



CSS:
a img.rollover {
position: absolute;
visibility: hidden;
}

a:hover img.rollover {
visibility: visible;
}

a:hover {
white-space: normal;
}

Well, actually I came across this thread when it was 4 years old, and it fixed my problem that I have been banging my head on for days!
