When I try to view this in Internet Explorer, it looks all garbled and messed up. I tried viewing this in Mozilla FireFox, and it seems to display fine. I'm working on a CSS menu, and I didn't bother to try any hover code since it's not displaying properly even without it.

Untitled Document

ul {
display: none;
position: absolute;
top: 2px;
left: 80px;
}
-->

I'll assume a complete doctype

I'll assume you're using a complete doctype to put IE into standards mode. The problem probably lies in the fact that IE 6 doesn't understand the child selector.

I'll lay a fiver down that says he/she didn't. Why else would you leave out only that and the html tags? Tongue

First, you missed a closing

First, you missed a closing li tag after Option 1.
Change ul li > ul to ul ul

Yes, it seems the child

Yes, it seems the child selector is not supported in IE. I also realized that hovering is only supported in IE with the A tag. Looks like I'll have to use JavaScript.

If as I suspect you're

If as I suspect you're trying for a hover dropdown menu style thing then yes due to the fact that IE<7 does not support hover on all elements you require some for of scripting to provide that behavior. There are choices though you can go for javascript or use the csshover.htc file which provides support for hover and iirc focus on all elements.

You may want to read the 'Son of Suckerfish' example of this type of menu or check the forum tools link for the 'Multi Level Menu'

I've got another bet going on now, too. Too bad no one bothers to come back after we fix their problem. No "thanks", no "problem solved", no nothin'. Bah!
