Hello,

I have been working with CSS to make horizontal menu list for my site. The the test site can be seen <a href="http://www.umsis.miami.edu/~jarchie/spacecows/html/default1.html">here</a>. The nav list is the blue right under the main title. I have some trouble with the CSS though.

Currently, I have set it up to display a sub menu when a mouse is hoverd over the main meny item... as seen in "Home" and "About Us". The sub menus appear with no problem. The problem that lies though is that the as soon as the user stops hovering over the main menu item the sub immediatly disappears, which leaves teh problem that they will never be able to click on sub menu items.

I need help!!!

Regards

JTArchie

horizontal menu list

Works for me as well, on Mac:
Safari 1.2.3
Firefox 0.9.3
IE 5.2.3

It's a mess in IE/Mac however - but the nav works. And strangely, I got about 20 Internet Explorer Script Alerts citing either a low digit number or the word 'Porn'...

horizontal menu list

I apologize for the word that you saw. It was part of my debugging. Well as for seeing it correctly let me show a screenshot of what the problem I am having with the CSS in IE 6 for Win.

As it can be seen that IE renders the sub menu's position with respect to the list it is apart of. It renders the way I want it in Mozilla, but that could be an error on Mozilla. Can anyone give any insight?

Regards

JT

horizontal menu list

The porn doesn't bother me - I only mentioned it in case you weren't aware of it.
The problem you show in IE6/PC does not happen in any of the 4 browsers I use on Mac, including IE.
I'm not sure what flash.pro was seeing when he said it looked alright.
Looking the answer...

I have come to the realization that IE on Win cannot do anything right in CSS. Every time I write something, and works in Moz, I have to modify my CSS to have work with IE, and half the time it never works. I current project i am working calls for something to be centered... an unordered list within a div tag with the div tag being centered. Works perfectly in Moz, I have even done the modifications recommended so often to do the centering in IE, but for some reason IE is rendering it to the left.

Sorry, venting...
