Ok...so I've taken it upon myself to learn web design (for a company I'm starting). However I'm starting with converting a website I made for my current employer from "the way I learned html" to standards compliant html and css. Basically it's more of a learning exercise more than anything else.
Anyway the issue I'm having is with an absolute positioned element. It's a . On firefox and opera the site displays as I want it to. With the text "Menu" overlapping the background yellow bar. However...on IE the menu text is positioned way too low. So...what's the issue why is it not rendering correctly under IE, and how do I fix it so it does?
The relevant CSS is these sections
And the html
It might make more sense in the context of the entire page so the link is http://wildcathowies.com/menuie.htm
Looks the same to me
Looks the same to me comparing in FF and IE6 ?
I support your move to standards, and in light of that you maybe ought to think about your use of a table for the main nav links as it's lets things down it needs to be a simple ul list construct, the tables for the actual menus is acceptable but nowhere else.
