The page and code mentioned below are straight from DW Spry Menu Bar. I've had no help on their board after several attempts. If you can look at code below and figure out what DW cannot, I would appreciate it.

I've posted a page that is using default styles from the menubar spry widget. I've not monkeyed with this code at all, just renamed the .css and .js files to make links work without screwing up entire site. This is version 1.6.1.

IN IE7, the submenu on this page is aligned with the top of the parent menu instead of next to it's parent item in the main menu (Item 3). When you mouse over Item 3, the submenu appears at it's correct location.
There seems to be a problem with how IE7 handles the MenuBarSubmenuVisible class. It works correctly in FF and Safari.

THANKS.
